Washington, D.C. — The National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) has opened the nomination period for the 2022 NAB Technology Awards. The four awards highlight significant achievements in broadcast engineering, digital leadership and technology innovation. The awards will be presented at the 2022 NAB Show, held April 23 – 27 in Las Vegas.

The Radio and Television Engineering Achievement Awards are presented to individuals for their outstanding accomplishments in the broadcast radio or television industry, respectively.

The Digital Leadership Award honors an individual at a broadcast station, group or network who has transformed a traditional broadcast business to succeed on digital media platforms in a measurable way.
