Record number of entries reflects healthy spirit of innovation in broadcast and media technology
Gloucestershire, UK —03 September 2018 — IABM today announced the shortlisted entries for the IBC 2018 edition of its Broadcast and Media awards (BaMs™). From a record number of submissions, the judges have shortlisted four entrants in each of nine BaM™ Content Chain categories that accurately model the structure of the industry today, together with a tenth award recognizing an outstanding project, event or collaboration.
The panel of 40+ non-affiliated, expert judges are now scrutinizing the shortlisted entries. Visits to the stands of shortlisted companies will take place once IBC 2018 opens to complete the judging process. The eventual winners will be announced at the IABM BaM™ Awards Party on Saturday 15th September, 6-8pm in the Forum. Tickets are still available; you can register here.
“I’m again impressed with the quality – as well as the quantity – of the IABM BaM™ Awards entries for this IBC; it’s was a challenge for our judges to initially shortlist the top four in each category,” said John Ive, IABM Director Strategic Insight, chair of the judging panel. “The new BaM™ Content Chain model has ensured we include all the new developments across the broad spectrum of media and broadcast – and it is clear that innovation is driving profound changes, which these awards reflect. The task facing the judges in selecting the eventual winners will be tough indeed.”
