IBC is the event at which the world comes to share their knowledge about the electronic media and entertainment industry. The role of the IBC Awards is to celebrate the personalities and the organisations best demonstrating creativity and collaboration.
They are presented in a lively and fast-moving celebration during IBC. The ceremony also showcases some of the most exciting and stimulating content of the year. It is held on Sunday 15 September at 18:30 in the Auditorium which, for IBC is converted into a state of the art theatre and digital cinema.
The highest award that IBC bestows is the IBC International Honour for Excellence. In 2012 this went to the Science and Technical Research Laboratories of Japanese broadcaster NHK, responsible for many of the developments on which we all rely, from satellite broadcasting to high definition. Previous winners have included Sir David Attenborough, Manolo Romero for a career in Olympic television, and Aardman Animations.
|The ceremony also sees the presentation of the IBC Innovation Awards for Content Creation, Content Management and Content Delivery, and prizes for the Best Conference Paper Special Award and Exhibition Stand Design Awards. It is a great opportunity for the industry to come together, applaud the winners on stage and celebrate the achievements of our remarkable industry.|
