Several RADA graduates have been shortlisted for this year's BBC Audio Drama Awards, celebrating the range, originality and quality of audio dramas, including performers, writers, directors and sound designers.

Shortlisted for Best Actress this year are graduates Katherine Kelly (for A Badge) and Lydia Wilson (for Black Water: An American Story); Edward Hogg (Epitaph for a Spy) and Joel MacCormack (First Do No Harm) are nominated for Best Actor.

In the Best Debut Performance category, Abraham Popoola is shortlisted for his performance in An Angel in Miami.

RADA has a long history of graduates working in radio; acting students receive specific microphone technique classes during their time at RADA, and record several new radio plays each year. Our students also have a strong track record in the BBC's annual Carleton Hobbs Bursary Award, named after the RADA-trained actor who played Sherlock Holmes in 80 radio adaptations in the 1950s and 60s.

Visit the BBC website for the Audio Drama Awards full shortlist. Finalists will be announced on Tuesday 7 January, and the winners at a ceremony at BBC Broadcasting House on Sunday 2 February.
