IBC is back this December, and so too is Future’s annual Best of Show awards programme which celebrates the innovation and craft of the industry’s R&D teams by recognising some of the standout products and solutions on display in Amsterdam.
This year, Future is running two awards programmes to accommodate both IBC show exhibitors, and those that aren’t able to exhibit this time around. The Best of Show Awards 2021 is open to IBC 2021 show exhibitors and offers a valuable platform for companies to raise awareness for the new products and solutions they will be launching or showcasing at the RAI Amsterdam, on 3-6 December.
New for this year is our Best of 2021 Awards, a new programme for non-exhibiting companies that recognises outstanding broadcast products and solutions brought to market between September 2020 (the 2020 IBC Showcase) and December 2021. Both awards programmes are supported by Future’s media and entertainment technology brands – TVBEurope, Radio World, and TV Tech – and each brand will be providing its own dedicate coverage of all the winning entries.
What are the categories?
- The Best of Show Awards 2021 is open to all IBC 2021 exhibitors to enter products and solutions that will be showcased in Amsterdam this December. Eligible products must have been brought to market no earlier than September 2020
- The Best of 2021 Awards is open to companies who are not exhibiting at IBC 2021, but have launched products between September 2020 and December 2021
- Each awards programme contains three separate categories to enter depending on the most relevant magazine publication for your product: TVBEurope, TV Tech and Radio World
TVBEurope will feature all of the winning entries from our eponymous awards category as they are announced, in a special feature in the January 2022 edition of the magazine, and in a dedicated awards ebook which will be released after the show.
