Sport Production Achievement Awards
Full details on the 2018 Sport Production and Achievement Awards will be published on 1 June 2018.
In 2017, the categories and winners were:
OUTSTANDING TECHNICAL ACHIEVEMENT:
The Outstanding Technical Achievement award is presented for a specific technical achievement within a larger European production. Some examples include a new use of augmented reality, a new camera system, a new approach to live event audio. The award is not for the technology itself but rather its use within an event in a positive and meaningful way.
(2017 Winner: UEFA, Remote Uncompressed 4K Production)
OUTSTANDING DIGITAL ACHIEVEMENT:
The Outstanding Digital Achievement award is presented to the best European production or innovation that was distributed via digital distribution methods which include OTT, an app, VR, and social media platforms. Nominees will be evaluated on the level of innovation and quality of production.
(2017 Winner: BBC Sport)
OUTSTANDING LIVE EVENT ACHIEVEMENT:
