IBC Innovation Awards

Celebrating collaboration in technology and creativity

AwardsIBC is the one global forum where every aspect of the industry comes together to share knowledge, solve challenges and develop future strategies. The IBC Innovation Awards celebrate that spirit of co-operation and collaboration.

Now well established as the most coveted in the industry, the IBC Innovation Awards are the original and only truly independent industry awards for technological and creative innovation. They are so much more than product awards, rewarding excellence and unique in their approach: they are presented to the end user of the project - the broadcaster or media company that started with a requirement and who brought together the technology partners to find an exciting solution. At the same time, those technology partners are also celebrated and honoured for their contribution to a co-operative process which achieved the successful result.

A winning project will be one where the commissioning company works closely with technology partners to deliver a clever, appropriate and innovative solution to a real business, technical or creative issue. They might add to creativity, enable the enterprise to work more effectively, or use new ways to reach and engage with audiences.


IBC Innovation Awards Categories


Content Creation

Whatever the size of the screen and wherever you choose to watch it, what audiences want is great content. This award recognises projects which give creative talents the tools they need, from acquisition to post production.

Content Distribution

Great content is no use if it does not reach the eyes and ears of the consumer. This award celebrates the best new ways to manage content and connect creators and consumers, or creators and their collaborators. 

Content Everywhere

Consumers today expect to be engaged, wherever they are, whatever device is to hand. This award celebrates the connected experience, whether it is an app, a delivery strategy or the internet of things.
