IBC Awards Categories

IBC is the place where vendors and users come together to develop innovative technological solutions to meet real creative and commercial challenges. The IBC Awards celebrate that spirit of collaboration as well as the best in new technology.

IBC Innovation Awards

IBC2012The IBC Innovation Awards celebrate the partnership between a broadcaster or production company and technology suppliers that push for and deliver the quality, creativity and accessibility of content to the audience.

Applicants can submit their project under three categories; Content Creation, Content Management and Content Delivery. An international panel of judges carefully study each entry.

Entries for the IBC Innovation Awards are accepted between December and March each year. The deadline for entries for the IBC2015 Innovation Awards has now passed.

ifhe winner

The highest honour IBC bestows, the International Honour for Excellence is awarded each year to an individual or organisation that has made an outstanding contribution to the broadcast industry. Past winners have included Director James Cameron, Manolo Romero, Olympic Broadcasting Services and in 2011 Sir David Attenborough for a career spanning 60 years of endlessly innovative wildlife television.

The IBC2014 International Honour for Excellence was awarded to FIFA TV and in 2013 the IHFE was awarded to Director, Sir Peter Jackson.

The International Honour for Excellence this year recognises a technology – and the company behind it – which has been a key enabler of the transformation of our industry. The award goes to ARM, the company behind the processors in virtually all of our smartphones and tablets.

Best Conference Paper Award

Conference paperThe IBC Conference, with its important exchange of ideas and opinions, is at the very heart of IBC. Within the conference, the technical papers programme is seen as the most important global arena to unveil the latest in cutting edge research.

The Technical Papers Committee provides a peer review of every paper to be presented. From their deliberations they also choose the single paper which best combines innovative thinking and clarity of presentation, with the author receiving the IBC Best Conference Paper Award.

This year, the IBC2015 Conference Prize is to be awarded to Andrew Cotton and Tim Borer of BBC Research & Development for their paper 'A Display Independent High Dynamic Range Television System'. The paper will be given in the IBC Conference in a session starting at 14:00 on Friday 11 September.

Special Award

From time to time, IBC makes a special award to a project, a person or a programme which has gone the extra mile and achieved something truly remarkable. 

Past examples have included Wiener Staatsoper – Vienna State Opera for bringing live performances to multi-platform delivery, the NHK development of Super Hi-Vision, Sky Television’s 3D coverage of the 2010 FIFA World Cup, and in 2011 Atlantic Productions’ remarkable documentary Flying Monsters 3D with Sir David Attenborough. 

Exhibition Design Awards

Helping visitors find the technologies they require from the 1,400+ IBC exhibitors is a challenge. We play our part in the way we lay out the halls by theme, and the exhibitors play their part by designing stands which guide the visitor and showcase their products.

A dedicated team of judges tour the entire exhibition, looking carefully at every stand and choosing those which they regard as outstanding in terms of accessibility, clarity and image. There are three IBC Exhibition Design Awards: for the Most Imaginative Yse of Shell Scheme Space, and for the Best Smaller and Larger Free-Design Stands.
