Robert Ketteridge, Head of Arts, Documentaries and Drama for BBC Radio & Music Production will coordinate the Digital Audio Jury Group
‘In its first two years the Digital Audio category has recognised a wide spectrum of digital work with audio at its heart, from fresh approaches to podcasting and social media campaigns to art-projects and new ways of interacting with audiences. Innovation and impact are at the heart of what the jury members will be looking for and I am looking forward to welcoming another new generation of digital audio talent to PRIX EUROPA for the third year of this award.’
I grew up in Manchester, studied English at university and joined the BBC as a trainee in local radio news. I worked for several years as a producer of arts programmes and documentaries and in 2003 became Editor of the Documentaries Unit, looking after a wide range of programmes including series with the British Museum such as A History of the World in 100 Objects and Germany: Memories of a Nation. Today my responsibilities continue to include documentaries and arts and I also help to manage the radio drama teams in London and Birmingham.
