Call for IBC2017 Innovation Awards Entries is Open!06 Mar 2017
This year’s Innovation Awards are even more inclusive and engaging, with changes to the categories designed to respond to a shifting industry landscape. The categories have been adjusted as follows:
- Content Creation – whatever the size of the screen and wherever you watch it, what audiences want is engaging content. The IBC2017 Innovation Award for Content Creation is for projects which give creative talents the tools to work, from acquisition to post production
- Content Distribution – that wonderfully creative content is of no use if it does not reach the eyes and ears of the consumer. The IBC2017 Innovation Award for Content Distribution will recognise projects that connect creators and consumers – or creators with their collaborators – in new ways
- Content Everywhere – audiences expect a joined-up experience everywhere from social media to the movie theatre. The IBC2017 Innovation Award for Content Everywhere seeks projects which make the most of the connected world, using technology in new and imaginative ways to inform, entertain and excite audiences.
“The media and technology industry is changing fast, and only the most nimble will prosper. The IBC Innovation Awards recognise the best innovative collaboration between media companies and vendors.” Michael Crimp, CEO, IBC said. “Now well established in the industry, these awards are more relevant than ever before.”
The deadline for award entry submissions is Monday 24 April, with a shortlist of finalists announced in July. Entry guidelines, entry forms and additional information can be found at IBC.org/innovation-awards.
