LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/IBC2018?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#IBC2018lt;/agt;–The IBC2019 Awards are now open for entries, with the aim of celebrating
excellence across the industry. From the most exciting technical
achievements in media, entertainment and technology to outstanding
individual accomplishments and projects that have made a positive social
impact, the IBC Awards are a coveted mark of recognition from industry
peers in keeping with IBC’s ethos of being ‘by the industry, for the

IBC is pleased to announce two new categories this year, which reflect
the way the industry is developing globally. The Young Pioneer Award
celebrates the newest, brightest talent in the industry. From the
entries, the top thirty rising stars demonstrating outstanding passion,
ambition and commitment to their work, whether in a creative, technical,
commercial or strategic role, will be shortlisted in the ‘IBC365 30
under 30 list’ with the stand-out entry winning the Young Pioneer Award.
The Social Impact Award will recognise a company initiative or
campaign that is making a positive impact in the wider world, tackling
an issue that is important within the context of the industry such as
sustainability, diversity or health. Both of these new award categories
are free to enter.

“It’s important for IBC to shine a light on rising talent and to
recognise achievements that push the industry to ever greater heights.
We are excited to introduce these new awards to celebrate how talented
professionals in our sector are accomplishing great things” said Jaisica
Lapsiwala, Head of Content, IBC.

Returning for 2019 are the much sought-after Innovation Awards,
championing the creativity of projects and the teams behind them. As the
disruption of the media, entertainment and technology industry continues
and the convergence with other verticals accelerates, the judges are
keen to see examples of productive collaboration that leads to
innovative solutions for the challenges and opportunities created. The
size and scale of a project is unimportant as long as the entry
demonstrates ground-breaking innovation and solves a real-world problem
in a creative way. The three Innovation Award categories are Content
Creation, Content Distribution
and Content Everywhere.

Entries will benefit from the dedicated global marketing programme
surrounding the awards and are invited to attend the awards ceremony,
which takes place during IBC on Sunday 15 September in the RAI
Auditorium, Amsterdam. The ceremony will also see several Outstanding
Achievement Awards
bestowed by the judges, including IBC’s most
prestigious award, the International Honour for Excellence.

The deadline for submissions is Tuesday 23 April 2019.

Full details on how to enter can be found at show.ibc.org/awards.
