“We received over 3,600 industry votes during the NTIA polling period, this is a record number of votes. Competition across all categories was fierce, but the industry has spoken and today we are pleased to announce the highest–ranked nominees who will proceed through to the finalist status,” said Jayson Westbury, AFTA Chief Executive.

“For the judged categories, presentations to the NTIA Judging panel will take place between Monday 16 May and Tuesday 24 May at the AFTA Office in Pitt Street, Sydney. To help with presentation preparation AFTA will be holding a Webinar where NTIA Chief Judge Bob Lunnon will provide industry with a sound understanding of how to appropriately prepare,” said Westbury.
