INTRODUCING AV IN ACTION

CELEBRATING THE INDUSTRY'S SUCCESSES DURING CHALLENGING TIMES

In light of the pandemic, the AV Magazine team would like to highlight the incredible innovation and ingenuity the AV community have shown throughout this period. We are therefore introducing a new, free-to-enter category to this year’s AV Awards: the ‘AV in Action’ award.

This award will give organisations the opportunity to tell their story of a solution, project, company or individual that has risen to the challenge throughout the virus outbreak. We’re looking for initiatives that have helped sectors to continue to function, or have assisted those on the front line to contain the spread of the virus.

Whether providing kit for field hospitals, repurposing production facilities to create PPE or pivoting to produce temperature monitoring solutions, we want to hear from you!

Entries for this special category will be reviewed directly by our editorial team. To enter, please email a 300-word submission plus any images to AV Magazine Editor Zoe Mutter

The deadline for entries is 4 September, with shortlisted initiatives to be announced later that month. The winner will be revealed at the AV Awards ceremony on 20 November. Submit your entry today!


ALSO NEW FOR 2020

We are introducing three new discretionary categories for 2020. These accolades will be selected by our judges from the awards entries we have received to recognise organisation and individuals that have shown impeccable relevant credentials in their submissions.

The aim of these new awards is to highlight what our industry should be aspiring to achieve – exceptional innovation, diversity, inclusion, sustainability and employee engagement. The awards will only be presented if the judges feel that the entries submitted demonstrate these qualities to an extraordinary level.


THE THREE DISCRETIONARY AWARDS ARE:

Innovation of the Year Award (Technology)

Green Awards (All categories)

Business of the Year Award (Business categories)


We’re taking our mission to raise standards and reward best practice to the next level with these new awards which will recognise those businesses raising the bar and setting new standards we should all strive to achieve. Winners will be announced at the AV Awards on 20 November.
