Call for Entry for AIBD Television & Radio Awards 2014

Continuing with its effort to promote quality programming for various target audience groups, AIBD is announcing the Call for Entry for the AIBD Television & Radio Awards 2014. We are pleased to present this opportunity to all AIBD members and affiliates. Supported by AIBD, this competition will provide the opportunity for your television and radio producers to receive international recognition for their work.

AIBD presents the awards in two categories:

AIBD TV Award for the Best TV programme on:

Sports and Social Change

With 2014 being the stage for several mega sports events such as the Winter Olympic Games and the FIFA World Cup and it is an ideal time to look at how sports can be a force for positive social change. How can sports activities be harnessed for the greater good of all?

Protection of Indigenous Communities

As many countries pursue agendas of rapid economic growth and urbanization, indigenous communities are often at risk of being marginalized and harmed. What can be done to ensure indigenous communities are treated with respect and care and not become a disadvantaged population?

AIBD Radio Award for the Best Radio Programme on:

Human Migration and its consequences

International migration of people has large-scale ramifications on society and economic growth, such as ‘brain drain’ from developing to developed countries. What aspects of human migration have not been fully explored as of yet?

ICTs for Development

Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) hold tremendous potential for progress in the fields of socioeconomic development, international development and human rights. How can ICTs be incorporated to ensure development along with social harmony?

“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 40th Annual Gathering and 13th AIBD General Conference & Associated Meetings to be held in Phnom Penh, Cambodia on 13-15 August 2014.

Please note that producers can submit up to two programmes per category and the deadline for programme submission is 30 June 2014.
