The IABM (International Association of Broadcasting Manufacturers) Engineering Student Awards are now open for entries.

The awards recognise high-achievers in the fields of broadcast engineering or media technology at colleges and universities.

The winners will be given financial support to attend the IBC trade show in September.

“Education is an important part of the IABM’s work to support the broadcast and media technology supply industry worldwide, and the Engineering Student Awards reflect the IABM’s commitment to recognising today’s engineering students and connecting them with the technologies and companies driving our industry forward,” said Roger Crumpton (pictured), a founding director and trustee of the IABM Educational Foundation.

“We are confident that attendance at the IBC show will give award winners an insight into the many professional possibilities open to bright young engineers.”

The awards are open to full-time students from around the world.

To enter, students must submit a 500-word essay explaining how they would benefit from attending the IBC trade show.

The deadline for submitting applications is Friday 31 May.
