The #RoadToATA has started in ernest, as the entry submissions for the Asian Television Awards 2016 (ATA) are finally open.
For this year, the Best Direction category has been re-categorised into Fiction and Non-Fiction genres, bringing the number of trophies up-for-grabs to 41. This is of course not including the coveted final four awards (terrestrial channel of the year, cable & satellite channel of the year, terrestrial broadcaster of the year and cable & satellite network of the year), which are determined on a points scoring system. The Terrestrial Channel of the Year and the Cable & Satellite Channel of the Year Awards are for the single terrestrial or cable & satellite channel gaining the most wins or highly commended for programming produced for and aired on that single channel. Terrestrial Broadcaster of the Year and the Cable & Satellite Network of the Year Awards are combination of points for programming wins or highly commended from all channels under the same broadcaster or network.

As you look to entering Asian Television Awards 2016, let’s see how ATA has benefitted the companies and personalities who have participated in the awards event.
“The Asian Television Awards is always a great ending to the year. It’s a fitting recognition for us in the industry of how hard we have worked over the past year, and how many talented writers, producers and creators there are in Asia Pacific. While winning awards is never an objective one starts out with, the recognition it brings is certainly gratifying and immensely encouraging for everyone involved.” – Ricky Ow President Turner International Asia Pacific
