NZTV Awards will shine online

Posted Tuesday 12 May 2020

We're very pleased to hear that the New Zealand Television Awards are returning in 2020, albeit in a slightly differentl format. The Craft and Gala awards ceremonies will now be merged into one, and, as there's still uncertainty around when mass gathering Covid-19 restrictions will be lifted, the NZTV Awards winners ceremony will be announced via a special broadcast online in November. The other good news is that because of the move to digital, the Awards entry fee has dropped to $75 + GST per submission.

These will be fast-tracked as much as possible, but the new process will ensure guidelines are communicated to those involved in any shoot.
