AIB are unique in the field of international electronic media by offering both peer and external review of entries.
They are also independent of commercial influence.
The AIBs recognise the special skills and needs of the international broadcasting industry – an industry that is constantly growing, developing and increasing its reach as the use of new delivery platforms enable broadcasters to reach ever larger and more international audiences.
Everyone loves a winner and people throughout the industry enjoy the recognition of the peers.
It is particularly important in these harsh economic times that the international media industry’s creativity and innovation is recognised.
Winning one of the AIBs confirms that your programming and content is really working, that your marketing is having an impact or that your technology is valued internationally.
Importantly, the Awards are open to content produced in any language.
AIB actively encourage producers of content in all languages to enter this year’s AIBs since 90% of the world’s population does not speak English as a first language.
The 2009 AIBs will be presented at a gala evening in London on 4 November 2009, when celebrating the creativity and influence of the world’s international broadcasters.
The evening is a fantastic opportunity to meet programme makers, marketers, new media experts and technologists from around the world, to share ideas and to start conversations.
It’s a great way to celebrate the success of your work and to gain column inches in the international press coverage that the AIBs generate each year.
Winners will receive a glittering trophy on stage, generating more exposure and coverage for their organisation.
The broadcast must have been transmitted originally between 1 May and 30 June and be an original production for television, radio or distribution as live online organisation.
