The IABM BaM Awards®

We are very excited to announce that our BaM Awards® are back! ​

Entries now open!

Closing date for entries, 31st October 2022. Winners to be announced on 1 December 2022.


Breaking away from outdated, hardware-centric industry models, the BaM Awards® categories are based on IABM’s industry model, the BaM Content Chain®: from Creator to Consumer. The BaM™ Content Chain describes the industry in the same way that broadcast and media companies themselves think, using the same terminology.

Encouraging innovation for more than 25 years


The IABM BaM Awards® recognize outstanding technological innovations that deliver real business and creative benefits. The BaMs are the only truly independent technology awards in the industry, and are widely recognized as the gold standard for rewarding Broadcast and Media innovation.
