The Plambeck Award is named in honor of Past NAFB President and Hall of Fame Inductee Herb Plambeck. The Plambeck Award recognizes the best single and series radio commercials that air on NAFB stations and networks. It is the goal of NAFB to promote and recognize commercials that are designed to inform, influence, motivate, and entertain their target audiences.

Submissions are judged by a panel of producers, agency representatives, and NAFB past presidents.
