Singapore, 10 June 2011 – The search for Asia’s best begins right now as the 16th Asian Television Awards 2011 (ATA2011) proudly opens its ‘Call for Entries’ – running until Friday, 15th July 2011.

Now into its 16th successful year, ATA remains the only pan-Asian media event of such prestige and standing. It recognizes talent, spurs industry progress, and enhances the glamour of regional media. We are proud to announce that ATA2010 attracted a strong response with 981 entries from 15 countries.

Over the years, the Awards have evolved to keep in step with the changing needs of our industry. To keep these awards current with the latest programming trends, the categories are reviewed every year according to industry demands. This year, three new award categories have been introduced, namely Best Preschool Education Programme, Best Theme Song and Best Drama Screenplay. In addition, the two documentary categories have been renamed as Best Documentary Feature (one-off) and Best Documentary Series.

We believe that ATA2011 will continue to showcase and reward the best in television programming from throughout the region. The winners of 39 awards will be announced at the ATA2011 Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony to be held in Singapore on 8 December 2011.

About Asian Television Awards

Launched in 1996, Asian Television Awards (ATA) is the Asian TV industry’s most significant and celebrated event, recognizing excellence in programming, production and performance.

Determined by an expert panel of over 50 judges from across the region, the results are tabulated and audited by international auditing firm PriceWaterhouseCoopers, with the winners only announced during the Awards Ceremony and Gala Dinner in December.

The judging process has also been brought into the digital era by being conducted on-line. This is designed to lessen the judging workload and provide judges greater comfort and flexibility by enabling them to screen the entries at their own pace.

The Awards comprise over 30 categories and represent the industry’s foremost recognition by enjoying the support of every major industry player throughout the region. ATA attracts a multitude of entries from a wide range of broadcasters, including free-to-air television stations and pay-TV platforms, as well as many independent production houses in Asia.

ATA is positioned as the only event of its kind within the Asian region, and upholds a prestigious reputation of showcasing quality television production.
