Shortlist announced for IABM BaM Awards at NAB Show 2019

IABM has announced the shortlisted entries for the NAB Show 2019 edition of its BaM Awards. With more than 160 entries - a record number - the judges have shortlisted a total of 40 entrants across the nine BaM Content Chain categories that accurately model the structure of the industry today, together with a tenth award recognising an outstanding project, event or collaboration.

The panel of 40+ non-affiliated, expert judges is now scrutinizing the shortlisted entries. Visits to the stands of shortlisted companies will take place once NAB Show 2019 opens to complete the judging process. The eventual winners will be announced at the IABM BaM Awards Party on Tuesday 9 April, which is being held in Ballroom B at the Westgate hotel adjacent to the Convention Center from 6-8pm. Tickets are still available for IABM members. 

“Once again, we have had a difficult job paring down so many high quality entries to produce this shortlist,” said John Ive, IABM director strategic insight, chair of the judging panel. “The BaM Content Chain model has given us an excellent framework to assess the potential impact of entries across the flow of the new content factory and it is heartening that innovation continues to drive our industry forward in every part of the content chain. The shortlisted entries are all of the highest quality - now it is down to the judges to select the very best of the best.”
