Nominations for the TVBAwards close next Friday, meaning there is still over a week left to enter a project which demonstrates exceptional work in the production, management, and delivery of media content.
In a slight change to our inaugural event last October, 12 Awards are this year split into the categories of Live Production, Production and Post, Infrastructure, and TVBEverywhere, in addition to five Special Awards.
Live events make some of the most compelling television, and the genre remains one of the few that will guarantee to draw large audiences collectively to the box, rather than watching time-shifted content. A brand new category, Live Production recognises the teams working together to deliver the best in live sports broadcast, live broadcast, and live broadcast sound.
EVS, Elemental Technologies and Channel Four were all recognised at the TVBAwards 2015 for great live broadcast projects, so it will be exciting to see which other companies will join the race for a gong this year.
This year we have rearranged the awards for achievement in image capture, achievement in sound, and achievement in post production into one category: Production and Post.
The use of audio in a broadcast or non-broadcast production is often overlooked, so entries in the achievement in sound award will showcase the level of talent in the sector. Nominations will be accepted for audio enhancement in post production as well as for recording, editing, mixing and overall excellence in the use of audio.
Voting is open to all projects/programmes completed and aired during the 12 months from 1 August, 2014 to 31 July, 2015. The new start-up/entrepreneur award has a scope of three years to ensure inclusivity for recently founded companies, and the lifetime achievement award is decided by our independent judging panel and is not open to public vote.
The Awards will be presented at ceremony at the Bloomsbury Ballroom, London, on 22 October. Tickets are available now, as well as a range of sponsorship opportunities. Contact Steve Connolly [email protected], Ben Ewles [email protected], or Richard Carr [email protected] for more information.
