Antenna Awards

The Antenna Awards are an annual award ceremony that recognises outstanding community television programs broadcast on Australia's Channel 31 stations. Since their inception in 2004, the Antennas have been traditionally hosted by C31 Melbourne, and are held at a gala ceremony at Federation Square.

Nominations are forwarded by community television volunteers and audience members, and this pool of nominees is weeded down to a final list for each award. More than 500 initial nominations are received each year.

The 'The viewers choice' Award (in which viewers can vote on their favorite program) as well as the 'Best contribution to community Television' are the only two awards not judged by a pannel and with shortlisted nominees
