The IABM has announced the winners of its annual awards during a gala dinner at its Annual International Business Conference.

"The awards seek to recognise both individuals and organisations within the broadcast and media manufacturing supply industry that demonstrate innovation and leadership, and this year sees the inclusion of a new category, Broadcast & Media Industry Woman of the Year," a statement said.

Inaugural winner Naomi Climer is president of Sony Media Cloud Service and began her career as a broadcast engineer for the BBC in 1987. Ms Climer was recently appointed president-elect of the Institute of Engineering Technology and will become the first woman president when she begins her role in October 2015.

John Ross OC, founder of Ross Video and broadcast manufacturing industry key authority was given honorary IABM membership.

AXON picked up the Peter Wayne Award for innovation for its neuron networked live production system.

The Young Person of the Year Award winner, picked from IABM's 2012 and 2013 student winners, was announced as Adam Plowden. Mr Plowden won the IABM Student Engineering Award, which afforded him a visit to IBC.

"Following IBC Adam kept in touch with IABM and has since worked with us on a number of occasions to deliver high quality content," explained Steve Warner, Training Manager, IABM. "Adam has been a fine advert for our award scheme and thoroughly deserves this award."

Elemental Technologies won the Sustainability Award, meeting the standards to minimise its environmental footprint by demonstrating ethical behaviour and integrity in commercial activities.

John Ive, Director of Business Development & Technology and head of the award judging panel, said: "Here is a relatively young company, founded just eight years ago that clearly understands both areas as part of their core values, which are proudly expressed on their website. The judges were particularly impressed with the employee engagement encouraged as an integral part of their green initiatives and the emphasis on support for their community."

IABM's Annual International Business Conference took place at Radisson Blu Edwardian in Heathrow, London.
