THE END OF THE ATV AWARDS?
Is the ATV Awards on this year? The normal entry deadline has well and truly gone (last year it was in mid March), and the big night is usually in mid August. And no CD contacted by CB has heard from the ATV Awards organisers this year. Calls to the ATV Awards phone number listed on their website reveals that the number has been disconnected. The ATV Awards, which celebrated its 30th anniversary last year, were hit hard in 2005 by the introduction of the Kodak Gongs, which has the full support of the Australasian TVC production industry, previously the main source of sponsors of the ATV Awards in previous years. The Kodak Gongs will be held in Sydney in September, venue TBA.
