Compiling a virtual awards ceremony

Due to pandemics many of our plans were corrupted and changed. The previously planned in-person events had to be carried out virtually.

Since established, the EMS Media Awards were presented live during the EMS Annual Meeting.  Everybody appreciated the opportunity for networking, informal questions and sharing of detailed backstage information.

Due to pandemic the EMS Annual Meeting in 2020 was cancelled and with this also the opportunity to present the awardees live vanished. This was a huge disappointment for the awardees. To overcome this drawback the Media and Communication Committee decided to organize a virtual media awards ceremony. Although we felt a bit uneasy at the beginning, a very positive response of all awardees encouraged us. With no previous experience in virtual awards ceremonies we compiled a scenario and gave instructions to awardees how to prepare their intervention in an appealing and sometimes entertaining way. We would be happy to share how the project developed and which technical problems we encountered.
