As Newsshooter comes up to its fifth birthday we have decided to launch our own awards to recognise the best new products and innovations on show at IBC 2014. There are plenty of other industry awards out there but none that commend gear that specifically addresses the needs of real world shooters – we thought it was time to change that.

The winning products will be chosen on based on their usefulness to working news and documentary shooters. Practicality, portability and durability will be among the key characteristics we are looking to reward.
