Connected Industry Awards

While challenging many of the established business models of the media industry, the Connected World also creates new opportunities for producers and owners to deliver their content to new audiences. The Connected Industry Awards seek out the innovative technology companies who are providing the platforms and infrastructure that create the new and secure routes to market required for a sustainable connected content industry.

Two Connected Industry Award categories are offered:
