Andrew Jones Young Person of the Year (Kindly Supported by IBC)
This award is named in honor of IABM friend and colleague Andrew Jones who we sadly lost in 2019. Andrew was IABM’s Head of Training and played a vital part in the development of our educational initiatives and fostering the next generation of talented people for our industry. The award recognizes someone new to the industry (under 25 years old) for their hard work, diligence and potential.

Technology Leader of the Year (Kindly Supported by IBC)
This award recognizes a person who is at the forefront of disruption and innovation within the Broadcast and Media industry who, through inspired leadership, has helped to deliver ground-breaking technology and business benefits.

Broadcast/Media Company of the Year
This award recognizes and rewards broadcasters or media companies that have demonstrated throughout the year that they are at the forefront of creating and distributing ground-breaking content through innovation across the content chain. MediaTech suppliers are urged to nominate their customers for this award.

Environmental Sustainability
Like every industry, Broadcast and Media is accountable for its effects on our beautiful but fragile planet. But as companies increasingly label themselves “eco-friendly,” it can be tricky to identify the companies that are truly so and those that are merely jumping on the environmental bandwagon for “green marketing.” This award recognizes companies that have made real strides in improving their and/or their customers’ impact on the environment.

Community Impact Award
The Community Impact Award celebrates a MediaTech company and/or its products or services that have made a significant impact for the greater good in a niche, local or global community outside of the M&E Industry.

M&E Mentoring Award
This award recognizes a person, group or company that has made an impact and been an inspiration in the lives of new people into the M&E Industry. They have assisted with knowledge by sharing wisdom and skills, offering brainstorming and a sounding board, helping the mentee develop a professional network, and provided a perspective for career/work strategies and options.
