Our mission is to facilitate the exchange of life-enhancing skills and knowledge to reduce serious accidental injuries.

With almost 2,000 entries across 30 countries, RoSPA Award entrants protect circa 7 million employees across all industry sectors. Combined, the three annual ceremonies host more than 2,500 guests at the evening gala dinners and almost 4,000 at the daytime ceremonies.

Data from the entries feeds into RoSPA occupational health and safety policy work and a community of RoSPA Award winners has been established to share best practice.

Constantly battling against the “elf and safety” culture, RoSPA Awards are seen as the “ones to win”, adding fun and glamour to the industry.

The AIBs – Association for International Broadcasting

The Association for International Broadcasting is the not-for-profit organisation that helps and supports international broadcasters – those that send their programmes across international borders such as BBC World, CNN, Al Jazeera, Voice of America. One of our core reasons to exist is to celebrate the incredible programmes that are produced for the international market. In 2005, at the request of our Members, the AIBs were launched. They are unique in the media world in allowing production companies and broadcasters of all sizes to compete on equal terms on a truly global stage. Unlike most broadcasting awards that are organised nationally, and all too often dominated by the large local players, the AIBs encourage and accept entries from companies small and large and in any language from any part of the world.

The AIBs celebrate the best in factual productions and entries come from all over the world in all languages and we accept entries from any producers, members and non-members of the AIB. The AIBs have grown from six categories to 21 since the awards started in 2005. The number of entries is increasing as more producers hear about the AIBs and the opportunity they have to showcase their work.
