FCC’s Policy Related to On-Air Contests

Perhaps your station wants to run a contest. But, did you know the FCC has rules for stations around contests?

Do you have to announce contest rules over the air? Is posting them on your website sufficient? In 2015, the FCC revised some of these rules. Your station is required to follow these regulations, so you must be clear on what you must do.

NFCB offers the full description of the FCC policy for your station at the Solution Center. You can read more at this page (login required). If your station is not yet an NFCB member, you can join here.
