IABM Reveals Shortlist For BaM Awards At IBC

News Image
The shortlist has been revealed for IABM's Broadcast and Media (BaM™) awards at IBC 2018.

There are four entries in each of nine BaM™ Content Chain categories, accurately modelling the structure of the industry today. The tenth award recognises an outstanding project, event or collaboration.

The panel of 40+ non-affiliated, expert judges are now scrutinising the shortlisted entries. Visits to the stands of shortlisted companies will take place once IBC 2018 opens to complete the judging process. The eventual winners will be announced at the IABM BaM™ Awards Party on Saturday 15 September, 6-8pm in the Forum.
"I'm again impressed with the quality – as well as the quantity – of the IABM BaM™ Awards entries for this IBC; it was a challenge for our judges to initially shortlist the top four in each category," said John Ive, IABM Director Strategic Insight, chair of the judging panel. "The new BaM™ Content Chain model has ensured we include all the new developments across the broad spectrum of media and broadcast – and it is clear that innovation is driving profound changes, which these awards reflect. The task facing the judges in selecting the eventual winners will be tough indeed."
