IBC recognises news broadcasters with new Honour for Excellence award

IBC has created a new awards category to honour broadcasters’ efforts throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. The International Honour for Excellence, the organisation’s highest award, will be presented in a livestream on 11 September at 13:00 BST. The award comes in recognition of the key role journalists have played in educating and informing audiences while operating under extremely challenging conditions.

“The need for investigative journalism to separate fact from rumour has never been greater and the news organisations of the world have been unfailing in their drive to ask the difficult questions,” said Michael Crimp, chief executive of IBC. “They have delivered clear, accurate and timely information, keeping audiences – even in isolated communities – informed about new regulations and complex science, while facing the same restrictions on travel and social distancing as everyone else. As the global forum for the broadcast and electronic media industry, it is important that we recognise the excellence that the world’s news organisations have consistently delivered during these challenging times and thank them for their dedication and service.”

The IBC2020 International Honour for Excellence will feature in a special programme, shown in the virtual IBC Showcase and hosted by Kasia Madera from BBC World News. The BBC’s health editor, Fergus Walsh will deliver a speech as part of a specially produced video featuring contributions from the leading news organisations, including the BBC, CNN, ITV News on behalf of ITN, NBC News International, TV Globo and Zee Media. The programme will provide an opportunity for organisations to share insight into how they are operating in the time of a pandemic, shedding light on their challenges and how they have overcome them through new workflows and remote production solutions.
