The RadioMicro Awards are a series of awards given to micronationalists of the Community by the RadioMicro Group. These awards were initiated by RadioMicro's host, Kit McCarthy, and inspired by J. P. Cole's Micronationalist Awards. The RadioMicro Awards are part of an expansion program of the RadioMicro Group. McCarthy announced his intention to create the RadioMicro Awards in a post on the Micronation.org forum on 16 August 2015.[1] The awards are redistributed every year.
