NDTV, TV18 and TV Today entries figure in four different categories for AIBs

BestMediaInfo Bureau | Delhi | October 28, 2013

The Association for International Broadcasting (AIB) has announced the shortlisted entries for the 2013 AIBs, its annual awards celebrating the best in international factual broadcasting. Drawn from nearly 300 entries submitted by TV and radio broadcasters, content producers and broadcasting technology companies throughout the world, the list for each of the 18 awards showcases the best broadcasts, personalities and enabling technology over the last year.

"We are delighted that the AIBs have attracted more broadcasters and independent producers from more countries than ever before,” said Simon Spanswick, CEO of AIB. “The shortlist demonstrates the continuing impact of broadcasting across the globe and how broadcasters search for the truth behind stories and provide context in a relevant way to viewers and listeners worldwide. Many entries also show how evolving technology is allowing TV, radio and transmedia programmes to reach out and involve the audience in new ways.”

Amitabh Srivastava, Regional Head, AIB South Asia, said, "The inclusion of NDTV, TV18 and TV Today entries in four different categories demonstrates the increasing worldwide impact of Indian broadcasting and how South Asian media is ready to compete globally. The AIB is committed to give opportunities to regions to come together on global platforms to showcase their programming."

The shortlist will be judged by a panel of over 50 leading and independent media professionals and senior broadcasting executives drawn from all over the world. Their independent votes will determine the best in each category based on quality, innovation and impact.

The winners will be announced at a gala dinner in London on Wednesday, November 6, 2013, attended by media executives, producers, journalists and editors from all over the world. The 2013 AIBs are sponsored by RTG TV and RT Ruptly.
