Science and Technology and Natural World


2021 will continue to be a year with challenges as COVID-19 around the world is restricting travel between many countries.
The AIBs competition will still go ahead. Never has telling stories to audiences across the world been more important, ensuring that the public has the facts that matter to them, ensuring that citizens are constantly informed. Reporting the news accurately, fairly and without sensationalism, combined with considered analysis and insight, is vital in these extraordinary times.
We are conscious that journalists and programme makers are under immense strain as they rise to the challenge of keeping citizens at home and abroad informed, often working with reduced resources from locations without the usual facilities and support. The AIB continues to pay tribute to you all.
