IABM Announces Shortlist For Annual Awards And BaM Awards

News Image
IABM has announced the shortlisted entries for the 2021 edition of both its Annual IABM Awards and BaM Awards®, the latter again being rolled into a single event this year rather than the previous two editions which would normally have taken place at NAB Show Las Vegas and IBC.

The shortlists have been selected from a total of more than 150 entries for the BaM Awards® - indicating the value that technology developers place on the recognition they confer. The BaM Awards® recognize innovation in each the nine BaM Content Chain® categories, together with a tenth award recognizing an outstanding project, event or collaboration. The panel of 40+ non-affiliated, expert judges is now evaluating the shortlisted entries in each BaM Awards® category.

There has also been a wide range of entries for the Annual IABM Awards – reflected in the quality of the shortlisted candidates.

The winners of both sets of awards will be announced at a special virtual Awards event at 6pm GMT on Thursday 9 December.

"No one can have failed to notice the speed and quality of innovation that's been powering the industry forward over the last year, but to see it all brought together in this year's record number of entries has been a real eye-opener," said IABM CTO, Stan Moote, who is chairing the judging panel. "We are again seeing genuinely ground-breaking innovations right across the BaM Content Chain® and the eventual winners will have to be absolutely stand-out; every shortlisted entry could be a worthy winner in its category."
