Amsterdam, The Netherlands —16 September 2018 —The winners of IABM’s Broadcast and Media awards (BaMs™) were announced at IABM’s BaM™ Awards party on 15th September at the IBC Show in Amsterdam. The winners, across nine categories described by the BaM™ Content Chain: Creator to Consumer, as well as a tenth category recognizing an outstanding project, collaboration or event, were selected from an initial 149 high quality submissions.
The judging was carried out by a panel of more than 40 non-affiliated, expert judges, each with specialist expertise in one or more of the awards categories. Final selections were made after visits by the judges to view the shortlisted entries on the applicants’ stands at IBC2018.
