TVBEurope has announced the debut of the TVBAwards, honouring the high points of TV technical achievement over the last year. The new awards event is being run in partnership with TVBEurope sister publication, TV Tech Europe.
The TVBAwards will take place on 23 October, 2014 at the Hilton London Wembley. The prestigious hotel is host to other successful Intent Media awards events, including the Install Awards by Installation magazine.
TVBEurope saw the need for an awards show that truly represented the depth and scope of broadcast production expertise in the European industry. The awards will honour the best of the best across three major production categories: Capture awards honour achievement in image and content creation; Workflow awards honour achievement in post production, audio and systems integration, and Delivery awards honour achievement in content distribution.
Accolades in these three production categories will be project-based, recognising a company’s excellence in its contribution to live or recorded TV content.
In addition, four Special Awards will be given, including a Lifetime Achievement Award, given to an individual who has provided years of exemplary service to the broadcast industry, and a Sustainability Award honouring a company making the best contribution toward ensuring a liveable future. There will also be an award for Marketing Campaign of the year and finally, the top prize of Outstanding Broadcast.
