Introduced with the inception of ABU in 1964, the ABU Prizes is an annual competition that has garnered interest from both ABU and non-ABU Members year after year.

The ABU Prizes aim to promote excellence in Radio and TV production in order to raise educational and cultural standards and to strengthen international understanding among the people of the ABU member countries and regions.

ABU Prizes 2017 received more than 260 entries for radio and TV categories, and 50 pre-selection juries spent nearly two months for the pre-selection.
