The prestigious MIPTV Médailles d’Honneur are awarded to senior executives who have, through their talent, leadership and passion, made a significant contribution to the world of television and the development of the international TV community.

The card represents Abudu’s position as a certified member of the International Academy of Television, Arts & Sciences, the organization responsible for staging the Emmy Awards.
In 2018, she was listed among the UK’s powerlist of most influential and powerful black Britons.
