The international awards for journalism and factual television, radio, audio and digital productions in any language run by the Association for International Broadcasting

2020 – an unprecedented year – marks the 16th year of these independent, influential and respected awards

Thank you to everyone who entered the AIBs 2020 during this tremendously challenging year

Congratulations to all the entrants to the AIBs 2020 who have reached the shortlist.
Watch out for details of our Awards ceremony in November – despite it being somewhat different this year, it will celebrate the work of all our entrants and the entire journalism and factual production sectors.
And a special shout out to our event partner Al Jazeera Media Network and category sponsor Radio Taiwan International.




2020 is an unprecedented year. As COVID-19 continues to spread rapidly around the world, each of us is presented with immense challenges and significant impacts on the way we live and work.
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 pays tribute to you all.
