What are the IABM BaM Awards®?

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.

'Any product that is recognized by the judging panel is not just an innovative solution, but is genuinely important to the market and sets the standard in its category.'
