The TV Week Logie Awards are now just a week away (has everyone made their last-minute vote for the ‘Race for Gold’?).
Last week saw pay-TV’s annual awards, The ASTRAs, handed out to their favourite shows and presenters, and the MTV Australia Awards did their bit for the music industry with a few TV awards thrown in.
And from tonight, Sunday, it’s the turn of the community TV sector to present its annual accolades with the Antenna Awards.
This year’s Antennas were actually handed out in a presentation last Thursday night in Melbourne, but the event is being broadcast on the various Channel 31’s at various times from tonight.
