Last year’s winners included BBC World Service presenter Shaimaa Khalil who was named International Radio Personality, and BBC Radio 5 live which won the Live Journalism award for a programme called The Reality Of Life With Dementia.
Simon Spanswick, CEO of the Association for International Broadcasting, said: “The work that we have seen entered during the first decade of the AIBs has been exceptional. There’s been a diversity of reporting and storytelling that has proved the continuing strength and quality of journalism in countries around the world. We have been privileged to see remarkable stories brought to audiences on every continent by the most outstanding programme makers of our age. We expect to see even more great examples of work from every continent as we enter the second decade of these important awards.”
