TVBAwards: Ten days to nominate
The clock continues to tick on the nomination deadline for the TVBAwards 2016, and there are now just ten days to put names forward for the third annual ceremony.
The nomination window closes on 22 August ahead of the awards night at the Grand Connaught Rooms on 20 October.
The event will celebrate success stories in the production, management and delivery of content, with this year's awards including a refined list of new, more diverse categories.
A new Hall of Fame initiative has been created to honour the individuals, organisations, and technical advancements that have helped – and are helping – to shape the broadcast and media technology sector as we know it today.
Acting as the centrepiece of the awards programme, the Hall of Fame awards recognise three specific areas: innovation and R&D award for outstanding technical achievement; rising star award; and the prestigious lifetime achievement award.
The sustainability category will deliver three awards; Sustainable production; Individual; and Business.
The other categories are:
The challenging area of live production is a refined art, and successful productions rely on many component parts working in orchestration to deliver the end result. This category recognises the teams working together to deliver the best in live sports broadcast, live broadcast, and live broadcast sound.
Production and Post
Highlighting the innovation coursing through the veins of the production and post sector, this category rewards those pushing the envelope in image capture, broadcast audio, and post production.
Infrastructure and Management
An often-overlooked area of expertise, the infrastructure category highlights the impressive work being done in systems integration, archive digitisation, and media asset management.
As the industry continues its move to more digital and non-linear means, the TVBEverywhere category pays homage to some of the cutting edge systems being used in programming and content provision across the industry. This year’s awards recognise VoD/catch-up and mobile TV provision, social media integration, and multiplatform production and delivery.
