20th Asian Television Awards unveils a series of “FIRSTS” at the Singapore Media Festival Press Conference

Published on 1 October 2015

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.



This year ATA will be presenting the achievement award to Mr. LIU Changle , Chairman and CEO of Phoenix Satellite Television, to honour and celebrate his remarkable contributions to the broadcast and television industry.
Indonesia’s Got Talent and Asia’s Got Talent judge and the World Music Award winner Anggun will also be making a special appearance at ATA this year — for the first time ever, the general public will be invited to attend the show. More amazing celebrities will be announced soon.













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.


Yours sincerely,

AAMAS - Cindy Ng - Executive Director
