The Association for International Broadcasting has agreed a deal with Radio Taiwan International for the annual journalism and factual programming awards, the AIBs.
2022 is the 18th year that the UK-headquartered Association for International Broadcasting has staged the AIBs to celebrate work produced for TV, radio and digital platforms.
“We are delighted to welcome Radio Taiwan International as the event partner for the AIBs 2022,” says Simon Spanswick, chief executive of the Association for International Broadcasting.
“Taiwan has one of the freest media environments in Asia, so it is absolutely fitting that RTI is stepping up to support the AIBs that celebrate journalism and freedom of expression internationally.
The partnership with RTI is central to the continuing success and growth of these renowned and respected awards that showcase outstanding news reporting and factual programming from around the world.”
Cheryl Lai, Chairperson of RTI, adds: “RTI is committed to freedom of the media as a pillar of democracy. We believe that it is vitally important to support those who are holding truth to power around the world, and to celebrate their essential work.
“RTI is glad to be partnering with these important awards for journalism and factual programming. We look forward to marking the achievements of some of the world’s best programme-makers who bring the stories that matter to global audiences.”
The AIBs are the world’s leading awards for factual productions across TV, radio and online and attract entries from broadcasters and production companies in over 40 countries. The competition is divided into 18 categories that range from daily journalism to investigative documentary, sports journalism to human interest.
Entries to the AIBs 2022 can be submitted until 1 July 2022 then will be presented at a gala dinner in London on 11 November.
