WELCOME !

Welcome to our website where we present our latest research reports and provide IBT members with regular updates on the media industry and highlight opportunities for NGOs to communicate more effectively across a range of media.

IBT members have exclusive access to the members’ area on this site, so they can register for events including briefings with executives from television, radio and online, training sessions, master classes and debates.

We’re delighted that our membership is growing and we welcome any inquiries from organizations interested in joining. We also welcome feedback on our events, research and website.

Annual Report 2013

2013 was one of our busiest and most productive years to date. We published two research reports, hosted a number of events including briefings and training sessions for our members, submitted evidence to inquiries by Ofcom, the BBC Trust, the Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee and the House of Lords Communications Committee. We expanded our membership and had regular meetings with media regulators, broadcasters and parliamentarians.

 

It’s particularly rewarding that our research continues to be widely praised and is of practical benefit to both media organisations and NGOs. We have now built up a substantial body of research, having published 15 reports since 2006. All of these are available to be downloaded from our website
