MUMBAI:  The Association for International Broadcasting (AIB) has announced the shortlisted entries for the 2013 AIBs, its annual awards celebrating the best in international factual broadcasting. Drawn from nearly 300 entries submitted by TV and radio broadcasters, content producers and broadcasting technology companies throughout the world, the lists for each of the 18 awards showcase the best broadcasts, personalities and enabling technology over the last year.

"We are delighted that the AIBs have attracted more broadcasters and independent producers from more countries than ever before” said Simon Spanswick, CEO of the AIB. “The short list demonstrates the continuing impact of broadcasting across the globe and how broadcasters search for the truth behind stories and provide context in a relevant way to viewers and listeners worldwide. Many entries also show how evolving technology is allowing TV, radio and transmedia programmes to reach out and involve the audience in new ways.”

Amitabh Srivastava, Regional Head of the AIB in South Asia added "The inclusion of NDTV, TV18 and TV Today entries in 4 different categories demonstrates the increasing worldwide impact of Indian broadcasting and how South Asian media is ready to compete globally. The AIB is committed to give opportunities to regions to come together on global platforms to showcase their programming. "

The shortlist will be judged by a panel of over 50 leading and independent media professionals and senior broadcasting executives drawn from all over the world. Their independent votes will determine the best in each category based on quality, innovation and impact.

The winners of the awards will then be announced at a gala dinner in London on Wednesday 6 November attended by media executives, producers, journalists and editors from all over the world.
