Call for entries for IABM BaM Awards® NAB Show 2024 edition

Industry’s most prized technology awards are open to all to enter

IABM, the international trade association for broadcast and media technology suppliers, has announced that entries are now open for the  2024 NAB Show edition of its BaM Awards®. The BaM Awards® recognize and reward outstanding technological innovations that deliver real business and creative benefits. The BaMs® are the only truly independent technology awards in the industry, and are widely recognized as the gold standard for rewarding Broadcast and Media innovation.

Submissions for the BaM Awards® are open to every company (whether an IABM member or not) that has launched a new product or service within 12 months prior to NAB Show Las Vegas; the nominated product must be available to view during the show. One entry is free for IABM members. Judging is carried out by a panel of 40+ independent, expert judges and the winners will be announced during the show in April.

The BaM Awards®, which run in two editions – at NAB Show Las Vegas and IBC each year, honor innovations in the nine categories that together make up the BaM Content Chain®, accurately modeling the structure of the industry today. In addition, a tenth category recognizes an outstanding project, event or collaboration.

The deadline for submissions is 4 March 2024. More information about the awards and categories, and the online entry form can be found here.

All the winners from both the NAB Show and IBC editions are automatically shortlisted for the IABM Peter Wayne Golden BaM Award®, with the overall winner receiving this ultimate industry accolade in December 2024.

“Because they are the industry’s only totally independently judged awards – and by acknowledged experts in their fields – BaM Awards® winners place great value on the industry-wide recognition and publicity that they confer,” said Stan Moote, CTO at IABM and Chair of the judges. “As the pace of transformation continues to accelerate in the Broadcast and Media industry, I expect the NAB Show 2024 edition of the BaM Awards® will raise the bar yet again.”
