Now in their 14th year, the AIBs are established as the foremost international awards contest for factual productions. One key reason for this is that we have an independent, international jury. Each year this jury brings together producers, editors, journalists and broadcasting executives to evaluate the remarkable work that the AIBs attract.

To be part of the judging panel for 2018 please contact Clare Dance at AIB {@}
