The AIBs are the international awards for factual video, audio and interactive productions.

2017 marks the 13th year of these independent, influential and respected awards.

“The AIBs are some of the most intelligent, thoughtful awards in the industry”

AIBs Advisory Group formed

The Association for International Broadcasting is keen to ensure that the AIBs fully reflect the needs of the media industry around the world. For example, we want to make sure that we provide awards categories that offer the best opportunities for producers to showcase their work.

That’s why this year we have set up an Awards Advisory Group to help steer the Association as it plans this year’s AIBs.

The first meeting of the Advisory Group took place on the 10 March.
