As the world starts to slowly regain some semblance of normality, the Association for International Broadcasting is pleased to announce that at the request of journalist, producers and editors around the world, the closing date of this year’s AIBs is being extended to 24 July 2020.
This extension provides a cushion for entrants and potential entrants as the world starts to slowly open up again as the COVID-19 pandemic recedes in many places.
We have been delighted that entries to the 16th annual AIBs have been arriving from around the world. We are also pleased that our international jury now stands at well over 30, with more experts confirming that they are looking forward to judging your work over the coming months.
There are 20 categories in this year’s AIBs, ranging from daily journalism to human interest, young journalist of the year to international channel of the year. You can see the full list here
We recognise that many, many people are still working from home and that there are logistical and operational challenges in getting hold of programmes, authorisations and more. We will be as flexible as we can in helping you to showcase your work of the past year in the AIBs – if you need assistance, please let us know and we will do our best to help.
These are your awards, your celebration of success. Please do take the time to look at the entry information
and consider sharing your work with colleagues and peers across the world.
Need help or have questions? Contact the AIB Secretariat on +44 20 7993 2557 between 0900 and 1600 GMT Monday to Friday.
