Radio categories include documentary, radio drama/comedy and news script.

The Paul Selvin Award is an honor that is “presented to that member whose script best embodies the spirit of the constitutional and civil rights and liberties which are indispensable to the survival of free writers everywhere and to those whose defense Paul Selvin committed his professional life.”

The WGA will also offer an award for on-air promotion writing. All entries must have been first broadcast between Sept. 1, 1996 and Aug. 31, 1997. Winners will be announced at the WGA’s 50th annual awards ceremony in 1998.
