Nominations Open for 2022 NAB Technology Awards


The National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) has opened the nomination period for the 2022 NAB Technology Awards. The four awards highlight significant achievements in broadcast engineering, digital leadership and technology innovation. The awards will be presented at the 2022 NAB Show, held April 23-27 in Las Vegas.

The Radio and Television Engineering Achievement Awards are presented to individuals for their outstanding accomplishments in the broadcast radio or television industry, respectively.

The Digital Leadership Award honors an individual at a broadcast station, group or network who has transformed a traditional broadcast business to succeed on digital media platforms in a measurable way.

The Technology Innovation Award honors an organization that brings advanced technology exhibits and demonstrations of significant merit to the NAB Show. The nominated exhibit should present advanced research and development projects in communications technologies that have not yet been commercialized.

Finally, the Best Paper Award honors the author(s) of a paper of exceptional merit that is published in the Proceedings of the 2022 Broadcast Engineering and Information Technology (BEIT) Conference, held each year as part of the NAB Show.

“These awards celebrate the individuals and organizations that have distinguished themselves by transforming our industry,” said NAB’s Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer Sam Matheny. “We are delighted to honor the industry’s technical and engineering achievements at NAB Show.”
