2014 Antenna Awards

enadmin, 1st October 2014

The 2014 Antenna Awards will be held on Wednesday, 1 October at the Deakin Edge at Melbourne's Federation Square.

Beginning in 2004, The Antenna Awards recognise the best community television programming from across Australia. These awards celebrate Australia's diversity and bring together the best new talent from a wide range of communities and cultures, interests and perspectives.

These awards are attended by over 450 representatives from the community television sector, the film and television industry, local business and local, state and federal governments.

Community television occupies an important place in Australia's media landscape. It is Australia's training ground for aspiring film and television professionals and fosters new talent, niche interest programming and cultural diversity. C31 Melbourne alone is home to 47 community production groups, through which hundreds of volunteers are engaged in community television production. Over 120 new, locally produced programs are broadcast each week in over 20 languages.

The Community Broadcasting Association of Australia (CBAA) welcomes the passing of legislation that guarantees community television will stay on air and gives Channel 31 Melbourne and Geelong and Channel 44 Adelaide greater certainty for the future.


It’s been a busy few weeks for sector advocacy. The CBAA has met with over 50 politicians to build support for Roadmap 2033. We made important submissions, in particular advocating for the role of community radio in the providing news services.
