The AIBs recognize the highest standards in factual productions across video, audio and online. The award for News Agency of the Year acknowledges the agency that has delivered the best video or audio services to its clients, and that has shown commitment to innovation in both content and delivery.

“Being shortlisted for this prestigious award is in itself recognition for the high standards of our work. Ruptly’s news videos cover stories that are not on the agenda, we find new angles, and new ways of telling the story. We are committed to making verified, reliable video news content accessible for all,” says Laura Lucchini, Head of News at Ruptly.

“Gaining a place on the shortlist is a significant achievement since the standard of entries across all our categories in 2021 has been, as ever, extraordinarily high,” the Association for International Broadcasting shortlist announcement says.
