IABM announces shortlisted entries for BaM Awards® at NAB Show 2023


Production, Monetize and Support awards categories on the rise

IABM today announced the shortlisted entries for the 2023 NAB Show edition of its BaM Awards®. The Awards have this year returned to their biannual format, centered around the two largest international exhibitions, NAB Show and IBC, now that in-person events have returned. The shortlist for the NAB Show edition has been selected by the judges from nearly 150 entries – reinforcing the value that technology developers place on the recognition provided by the BaM® Awards. The BaM Awards® recognize innovation in each of 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 examining the shortlisted entries in close detail. Visits to the stands of shortlisted companies will take place once NAB Show 2023 opens to complete the judging process. The eventual winners will be announced at the IABM BaM Awards® Party on Monday 17 April, beginning with a drinks reception kindly sponsored by Norigin Media at 6pm. Tickets are still available and all are welcome; register here.

“With the pace of innovation continuing to accelerate, it’s great to be back to a biannual running of the BaM Awards® so we can reward winning ideas in a more timely manner,” said Stan Moote, CTO at IABM and chair of the judging panel. “This year, we have noted a rise of entries in the production category, due to the ever-advancing technologies delivering new ways to produce content. The Monetize segment is also continuing to grow as media companies fight for every ounce of revenue, and Support is also on the increase, reflecting the overriding importance of quality of service and reducing churn rates.”
