Sport Production Awards 2018


Sponsored by 


Taking place immediately after the Sport Production Summit, the SVG Europe Sport Production Awards, sponsored by Canon, will celebrate another 12 months of exceptional creative and technical achievements in sports broadcasting.

For the first time, there are three separate Technical Achievement Awards, taking in Graphics, Audio and Imaging. There are also awards for Outstanding Digital Achievement and Outstanding Live Achievement. There will also be a further Europe-based inductee into the SVG Hall of Fame. 

For each entry, applicants are required to:



The Sports Production Awards categories are:

Outstanding Digital Achievement
The Outstanding Digital Achievement award is presented to the best European production or innovation made available via digital distribution methods including OTT,  app, VR and social media.

Outstanding Technical Achievement, Imaging
The Outstanding Technical Achievement, Imaging, is presented for a specific technical achievement in imaging within a production. Please note, the award is not for the technology itself (eg. a specific camera system) but rather for the end result and the way in which it changed the way fans visually experience the event.

Outstanding Technical Achievement, Audio
The Outstanding Technical Achievement, Audio award is presented for a specific technical achievement in audio within a production. The award is not for the technology itself but rather its use within an event in a positive and meaningful way.

Outstanding Technical Achievement, Graphics
The Outstanding Technical Achievement, Graphics is presented for a specific graphical technical achievement within a production. The award is not for the technology itself but rather its use within an event in a positive and meaningful way.

Outstanding Live Achievement
SVG Europe wishes to recognise a truly memorable European live sports event production, a complex team effort that delivers outstanding coverage of a key sporting event right across the disciplines of planning, production, resources and on-site operations.



The deadline for entries is 24 July 2018
