IBC International Honour for Excellence


Every year IBC provides you with an unparalleled platform to meet, address and learn from  56,000+ of the most engaged power brokers, press and prospects  in international electronic media and entertainment. The several busy exhibition halls, themed by creation, management and delivery are complemented by a host of  feature areas  specially designed to enhance visitors’ experience.

This year, IBC is creating a unique International Honour for Excellence. It will be not be presented to one person. Instead, it will honour every single news broadcaster in the world, to recognise the efforts they have made in the very difficult times in which we live.

Because of the global pandemic, it has never been more critical that news organisations should quickly deliver accurate information to their audiences. New recommendations and regulations need to be spread widely, and complex science needs to be explained with clarity.

At the same time, the possibilities for misinformation and fake news are rife. The highest standards of journalism provide fact-checking and a trusted source to identify what is true, what is rumour, and what is dangerous fiction. While we cannot talk to every news broadcaster, IBC has brought together contributions from some of the world’s most respected names:BBC, CNN, ITV News on behalf of ITN, NBC News International, TV Globo and Zee Media. Each tells the story of their approach to news in the time of pandemic, in their own words.

This unique, remarkable study will be compulsive viewing for all – broadcasters and viewers alike. It can be seen as part of IBC Showcase on Friday 11 September at 13:00 BST.
