CELEBRATING

THE BEST

2017 marks the thirteenth year that the Association for International

Broadcasting stages its truly global celebration of factual content.

Launched at the suggestion of AIB Members in 2005, over the past twelve

years the

AIBs

have caught the imagination and attention of programme

makers around the world. Today, the

AIBs

represent our highly respected

showcase for the best factual content produced worldwide.

The

AIBs

are a truly international event. In 2016, we received entries from

producers working in television, radio and online in more than 40 countries

and in every continent. Their work was judged by a panel of independent,

expert judges drawn from the media industry around the world. And our

awards gala dinner in London brought together editors, producers, journalists

and executives from companies in almost 30 countries.

In 2016, we introduced our

AIBs

Masterclass. This new initiative provides the

opportunity for programme makers to share their experiences in making

award-winning content in greater depth, providing a genuine forum to

explore new ideas and delve into a wide variety of programme making

concepts.

The

AIBs

are about sharing the best work and discovering the motivation for

making some of the most informative, challenging and rewarding content

on the planet. As a global competition, we go out of our way to encourage

entries in all languages, so the reach of the

AIBs

is immense and the

competition is inclusive.

Our awards night is informal and reflects our commitment to be collaborative

and to share insights and to hear great ideas, wherever they come from. Each

year, we are humbled to receive the most remarkable feedback from our

guests. They tell us that the

AIBs

are insightful, thoughtful, captivating and

inspiring.

Now I should like to extend an invitation to you to partner with the

AIBs

2017.

This annual competition provides the opportunity to align your brand with

the world’s very best factual content.

Please look through this booklet and then talk to us about the opportunities.

I look forward to welcoming you as a partner of the

AIBs

!
