UPDATED 9/2: The deadline to submit a nomination for the IBC 2020 Best of Show Awards has been extended to Friday, Sept. 4.

As this year’s fully virtual IBC Showcase gets ready to spring to life on Sept. 8, so too does Future’s annual Best of Show Awards. Typically run during the first three days of IBC at the RAI complex in Amsterdam, the 2020 version is running as a virtual program to coincide with the Showcase being run between Sept. 8-11.

This year in particular, the awards program is a great way for broadcast professionals to see all of the key product and technology innovations from around the Showcase in one place, and each participating title will feature the winning entries across their print and digital platforms. A special Best of Show digital supplement will also be distributed across Future’s international audience following the show, featuring all nominated products and solutions.


As ever, the Best of Show awards recognize the outstanding broadcast products and solutions being showcased this summer in four categories: TV Technology, TVBEurope, Pro Sound News (broadcast audio products) and Radio World (radio broadcast products).

All nominations will be reviewed by a panel of independent industry experts. Factors taken into account include general quality and relevance of the product; design and build quality; business/operational benefits; innovation in concept/design/delivery; technical excellence; cost-effectiveness; game-changing ability.

Entry submissions require:

  • Product name
  • 500 word pitch describing why the product is deserves to be considered for a Best of Show Award
  • A high res (300dpi) image of the product
  • The URL for the company who makes the product

Good luck to all those taking part, and we look forward to bringing our audience all of the latest products, technology, and thought leadership being showcased this September.
