The Huawei New Zealand Television Awards are back in 2019 with a new host and a new Gala venue. Fresh from her recent stint at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, comedian Alice Snedden (pictured below) will host this year's ceremony (Alice is the 2018 New Zealand Television Award-winner for Best Script: Comedy). Judging across 38 awards categories is now well underway and the event organisers say they've received more than 500 submissions - more than any previous year. Finalists will be announced on Thursday 24 October, and the Awards Gala will be held on Thursday 21 November at the Aotea Centre in Auckland. The local screen industry's artisans and technicians will be honoured at the New Zealand Television Craft Awards held on Wednesday 6 November at GridAKL.
