The AIBs 2020

Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic we were unable to hold our live event in 2020. We instead put together a two part programme to celebrate the shortlisted programmes and to reward the winners and highly commended. Both programmes can be seen here together with our in conversation with Waad Al-Kateab. 

We hope that next year will see a return to some sort of normality and that we will be able to hold our live event at Church House Westminster.

Until then stay safe and keep well – we look forward to seeing your work in the AIBs 2021 which open for entry on the 12 April 2021.

The AIBs 2021 will be held at Church House Westminster

Church House is one of London’s true gems, set within Dean’s Yard with stunning views of Westminster Abbey. Church House is a few minutes’ walk from Big Ben, The Houses of Parliament and St James’s Park. The main AIB awards show will take place in The Assembly Hall with the drinks reception taking place in Bishop Partridge Hall.

Guests travel from all over the world to join us for the AIBs celebrations. The AIBs are a great opportunity to meet colleagues from around the world and share stories and knowledge.

“Very rarely do we get to mix together with people from different countries and disciplines….The awards are so wide ranging and international” Dan Wright CNN
