We are glad that the Asian Television Awards (ATA) is part of a creative group that unites and endorses creative professionals in the region. This collaboration recognises every spectrum of media that empowers our screens today.
The 20th ATA has special significance this year — that’s two decades of rewarding Asian creativity and outstanding content in broadcasting — and there’ll be more to come.
Today, I am pleased to unveil a series of “Firsts” for this prestigious award show:
The twentieth edition of ATA returns as part of the Singapore Media Festival with a two-day event on 2 and 3 December, slated to take place at the state-of-the-art auditorium at Suntec City, Singapore.The Awards’ proceedings will be carried on MediaCorp’s Channel 5, Astro’s Ria, Bangkok TV’s Channel 7 and Channel 7HD, and will also be broadcasted live for the first time on Toggle, Media Channel, Bugaboo.tv and Tonton. With more broadcasters onboard this bandwagon, we strive to expand the reach of the awards to more than 80 million households in the region this year. This will not only promote Singapore’s efforts in recognising each territory’s home-grown talents, but also spread to unite Asia-Pacific to collectively witness the triumph of their very own talents from the comfort of their living rooms.
In addition, we are proud to announce that ATA has attracted more than 1,400 entries from 16 countries across the Asia-Pacific region. The number of entries received surpassed those in 2014 — a testament to the sustained interest and ever-widening reach of the awards.
That’s all from us for now. I look forward to all of you joining us in celebrating Asian television’s finest — the 20th Asian Television Awards on 2 and 3 December at Suntec City.
Thank you very much.
