SVG Europe Sport Production Awards – deadline for nominations extended to August 2!
SVG Europe has announced a short extension to the nominations period for the 2017 Sport Production Awards, to August 2. For the first time, the Sport Production Awards will this year be held as part of the Sport Production Summit, which will take place at the DeLaMar Theatre in Amsterdam on Thursday 14 September – just in advance of IBC2017.
In 2017 the Awards are being expanded twith two new categories. The new Outstanding Digital Achievement category will recognise achievement related to digital and social media sports content creation and distribution. Also new this year is the (non-voting) Outstanding Contribution to the European Sports Production Community Award, which will be determined by a team of industry peers and given to an individual they feel has made an exceptional contribution to the world of sports broadcasting.
The other existing categories are Outstanding Technical Achievement and Outstanding Live Event Achievement Awards, and nominations are open to any company or organisation involved in sports broadcasting. Nominations can be made at the dedicated microsite: https://www.svgeurope.org/sps2017/awards/, with August 2 as the final cut-off date.
The subsequent Awards Networking Party will be held at the RAI on evening of 16 September. Both the Sport Production Awards and Awards Networking Party are sponsored by Canon.
“We are delighted to again have the support of Canon for this exciting expansion of our annual Awards event, which as a result of the new categories and extended voting period will now provide a much-enhanced reflection of new achievements and excellence throughout the sports production world,” says SVG Europe Editor David Davies.
