Two Exciting New Categories To Debut At IBC2019 Awards

News Image
IBC is now welcoming entries for its annual awards ceremony, with two exciting new categories set to debut this year.

The IBC2019 Awards will celebrate excellence across the broadcast industry, and see the introduction of the Young Pioneer Award and Social Impact award.

The Young Pioneer Award celebrates the newest, brightest talent in the industry. From the entries, the top thirty rising stars demonstrating outstanding passion, ambition and commitment to their work, whether in a creative, technical, commercial or strategic role, will be shortlisted in the 'IBC365 30 under 30 list' with the stand-out entry winning the Young Pioneer Award.

The Social Impact Award will recognise a company initiative or campaign that is making a positive impact in the wider world, tackling an issue that is important within the context of the industry such as sustainability, diversity or health.

Both of these new award categories are free to enter.

"IBC continually evolves to reflect the changes within the industry, and is keen to recognise achievements that push the industry to ever greater heights," said Jaisica Lapsiwala, Head of Content, IBC. "We are excited to introduce these new awards to recognise how the talented people in our sector - whether individually or in collaboration - can accomplish great things."

Returning for 2019 are the much sought-after Innovation Awards, championing the creativity of projects and the teams behind them. As the disruption of the media, entertainment and technology industry continues and the convergence with other verticals accelerates, the judges are keen to see examples of productive collaboration that leads to innovative solutions for the challenges and opportunities created. The size and scale of a project is unimportant as long as the entry demonstrates ground-breaking innovation and solves a real-world problem in a creative way. The three Innovation Award categories are Content Creation, Content Distribution and Content Everywhere.

Entries will benefit from the dedicated global marketing programme surrounding the awards and are invited to attend the awards ceremony, which takes place during IBC on Sunday 15 September in the RAI Auditorium, Amsterdam. The ceremony will also see several Outstanding Achievement Awards bestowed by the judges, including IBC's most prestigious award, the International Honour for Excellence.

The deadline for submissions is Tuesday 23 April 2019.
