IABM Launches Broadcast And Media Awards

News Image
IABM has announced that it is launching a new, unified technology awards program for 2018 that will rapidly become the gold standard for broadcast and media innovators.

The Broadcast and Media awards (BaMs™) will be presented at NAB Show Las Vegas and IBC in Amsterdam to recognize outstanding technological innovations that deliver real business and creative benefits.

The BaMs™ will be awarded to innovations in nine newly-defined categories that accurately model the structure of the industry today. All the winners are automatically shortlisted for the IABM Peter Wayne Award, with the overall winner receiving this ultimate industry accolade at the IABM's Annual Awards at the end of the year.

Submissions for the BaMs™ are open to every company that has launched a new product or service within 12 months of NAB Show or IBC respectively. Judging will be carried out by a panel of 40 non-affiliated, expert judges, making the BaMs™ the only truly independent technology awards in the industry, and a genuinely valuable accolade for the winners that delivers industry-wide recognition and reward.

Entry for the NAB Show BaMs™ is now open; click here to see the entry form and terms & conditions.

Peter White, IABM CEO, said: "We have been running our NAB Game Changer Awards and IBC Design & Innovation Awards for some years now, and they have become highly-prized assets both for the winners and shortlisted entrants."

"The structure of the industry has transformed over the last couple of years, and we have restructured the awards categories to reflect this. It was a natural next step to unify the awards around the two largest events of the year – NAB Show and IBC – giving them equal status and recognition. I expect the BaMs™ to be quickly established as the gold standard for technology innovators in our exciting, fast-changing industry," White concluded.
