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. Judging is carried out by a panel of 40+ independent, expert judges. Submissions for the BaM Awards® are open to every company (whether an IABM member or not) that has launched a new product, service or solution since 7 March 2022.
The BaM Awards® recognize innovations in nine categories that together make up the BaM Content Chain® – Create, Produce, Manage, Monetize, Publish, Store, Connect, Support, Consume – together with a 10th category for an outstanding project, collaboration or event.

IABM CTO, Stan Moote, who is chairing the judging panel, said, “With the pace of innovation continuing to accelerate, it’s great to be able to return to two editions of the BaM Awards® – at NAB Show and IBC – to recognize breakthrough technologies in a more timely manner. I’m looking forward to joining the judging panel in the arduous but rewarding process of identifying the best of the best, and once again marveling at the ingenuity and inventiveness of our great industry.”
