The ASTRA Industry Excellence Awards recognise excellence in the promotion and innovation of subscription TV (STV). Entries for the Awards are sought from television channels, operators, production houses, media, advertising and creative agencies that contribute to Australian subscription TV. The winners will be announced as part of the ASTRA 2012 Conference, themed Driving Change, on Thursday 22 March at The Sydney Exhibition & Convention Centre.

“The ASTRA Industry Excellence Awards recognise exceptional talent across the STV industry and spotlight campaigns striving for continued excellence in promotion of industry. The variety of channels and content represented within the finalists clearly indicates that, across the board, the subscription TV industry is playing at the top of its field in developing successful promotions for premium quality content,” said ASTRA CEO Petra Buchanan.

The Awards are judged by panels of senior subscription TV marketing specialists who determine all finalists and winners in each award category.
