IABM: BaM Awards 

IABM, the international trade association for broadcast and media technology suppliers, is calling for entries for the 2020 NAB Show Las Vegas BaM Awards.

The IABM BaM Awards recognise outstanding technological innovations that deliver real business and creative benefits.

Submissions for the BaM Awards are open to every company (whether an IABM member or not) that has launched a new product or service within 12 months of NAB Show Las Vegas; the nominated product must be available to view during the show.

One entry is free for IABM members. Judging is carried out by a panel of 40 independent, expert judges and the winners will be announced at IABM’s BaM Awards party on Monday 20th April during the show.

The BaM Awards, which run in two editions – at NAB Show Las Vegas and IBC each year - honour innovations in nine categories that together make up the BaM Content Chain, accurately modelling the structure of the industry today. In addition, a tenth category recognizes an outstanding project, event or collaboration.

All the winners from both the NAB Show and IBC editions are automatically shortlisted for the IABM Peter Wayne Golden BaM Award, with the overall winner receiving this ultimate industry accolade at the IABM’s Annual International Business Conference.

“Because they are the industry’s only totally independently judged awards – and by acknowledged experts in their fields - BaM Awards winners place great value on the industry-wide recognition and publicity that they bring,” said IABM CEO Peter White.

“As the pace of innovation and transformation continues to accelerate in broadcast and media industry, I expect the NAB 2020 edition of the BaM Awards will raise the bar yet again.”

The deadline for submissions is 16th March 2020. More information about the awards and categories and the online entry form can be found here. Read more about the BaM Content Chain here.
