Share Your Applications of Innovation

The deadline for entries closes on 11 February 2011

The time has come for IBC to open its doors to submissions for the prestigious Innovation Awards. These Awards are presented every September at IBC in recognition of those who push the boundaries of entertainment and media technology and help shape the future of the industry.

The IBC Innovation Awards are unique in the sense that they recognise how manufacturers, vendors and end users work together to achieve a real benefit, be it technical, creative or commercial. The Awards celebrate the application of technology and the innovation that was achieved through working together.

The awards are presented in three categories – the most innovative projects in:

  • content creation
  • content management
  • content delivery

Winners of the shortlist are presented their Awards at the Awards Ceremony, which takes place during IBC. So if your organisation has applied an original solution to a real-world challenge, then submit your entry now.

The deadline for entries closes on 11 February 2011.


In addition to the Innovation Awards, the IBC Awards Ceremony also honours those in the industry who have made an outstanding contribution to broadcasting, including the International Honour for Excellence, Judges’ Prize, Best Conference Paper and the Exhibition Stand Design Awards.

Previous winners include Apple, BSkyB, Dreamworks Animation SKG, ESPN, HBS, Red Bull Air Race, Sony and Walt Disney Pictures.
