Announcement of Call of Entry for AIBD Awards 2015

AIBD is pleased to announce the opening of call of entry for the AIBD Awards 2015. We are pleased to present this opportunity to all AIBD members and affiliates. Supported by AIBD, this competition will provide the opportunity for television and radio producers to receive international recognition for their work.

The Awards are open in the following two categories:

AIBD TV Award for the Best TV programme on:

Encouraging Youth Empowerment

While young people are significant portions of many developing countries’ population, they remain an untapped resource. Young people offer fresh perspectives and idealism, but are often un-represented at the highest level. What steps can be taken to encourage and empower the youth to utilise their potential effectively for the greater good of the society?

Creative Ways to Harness Energy

Many developing countries are confronted with a looming energy crisis that results in shortages and price hikes affecting the entire society. However, as the saying goes, necessity is the mother of invention, and private and public endeavours have often shown creative plans to tackle the most pressing problems. In the face of this major issue, what innovative efforts have been taken for efficient energy, energy conservation and renewable energy?

AIBD Radio Award and Reinhard Keune Memorial Radio Award for the Best Radio Programme on:

Highlighting Science to the Public

The general public often finds it difficult to relate to science as a topic, and scientific facts or milestones are frequently viewed in a dry and disinterested light. Rather than just viewed as data and numbers, how can scientific subject matter be made more attractive and relatable by broadcasters? Can science be better represented to connect to a wider, more diverse audience?

Putting the Spotlight on Teachers in Society

Teachers in many developing countries remain a vital but unappreciated segment of society. Though tasked with shepherding the education of the next generation, they frequently do not receive sufficient support or attention. Difficult students, demanding parents and low salaries are some of the struggles many teachers are forced to deal with. Can the challenges that teachers face, both inside and outside the classroom, be given proper spotlight?

“The Prize” consists of US$ 500.00 cash, a trophy and a certificate presented by AIBD per Award category.

Winners will be presented with their Awards during the 41st Annual Gathering / 14th AIBD General Conference & Associated Meetings, to be hosted by the Government Public Relations Department (PRD), Thailand from 18 to 20 August 2015.

Please note that producers can submit up to two programmes per category and the deadline for programme submission is 30 June 2015.
