About the Asian Television Awards

Launched in 1996, Asian Television Awards is the Asian TV industry’s most significant and celebrated event, recognizing excellence in programming, production, and performance. 

Determined by an expert panel of over 60 judges from across the region, the Awards comprise more than 50 categories and represent the industry’s foremost recognition by enjoying the support of every major industry player throughout the region. The Asian Television Awards attracts a multitude of entries from a wide range of free-to-air television stations, pay-TV platforms, OTT platforms, independent production houses, and multi-channel network operators in Asia. 

In 2005, the Awards moved from a simple ceremony to a Gala Dinner format with the first gala function at the Shangri-la Hotel in Singapore.  Over the next decade, the Gala Dinner grew in scale and size. 

As part of its evolution, the Awards became a televised ceremony in 2013 and moved into a 2-day format comprising the Gala Dinner on Day 1 and the ATA Live Show on Day 2.  Starting with only Mediacorp and Fox Entertainment in 2013, the ATA Live Show has since secured support from 15 broadcasters in the region covering a footprint of 500 million homes. 

In 2018, the Awards progressed onto yet another milestone in its journey to be the ultimate accolade for content and talents in Asua Pacific.  That year, the Awards became a rotating Awards ceremony.  Starting with Malaysia in 2018, the Awards then moved to the Philippines in 2019.  Slated to move to Cambodia in 2020 and Vietnam in 2021, the plans were disrupted as a result of the Covid outbreak. 

At its 25th anniversary in 2020, the Awards expanded its reach further beyond broadcast channels by partnering with Twitter and Weibo to bring the live event to millions of fans across the region. Not only had this strategic partnership provided a more immersive engagement for our audience on the social media front, but also allowed for greater levels of interaction between fans and their favorite celebrities. 

In the coming 26th edition this 2021, ATA is once again taking the experience to the next level for its social media reach by expanding its partnership to include Facebook. This strategic partnership is a step further into ATA’s goal of reaching its millions of fans across the region. This has allowed the Award’s social media presence to become a platform for all stakeholders in the industry to engage with one another.  

While there are notable equivalents in the U.S. and in Europe, the Asian Television Awards is the only event of its kind in Asia, making it the definitive platform to showcase and recognize quality content productions and talents within Asia. 

It's the collab we never knew we needed! Our best queen Pia Wurtzbach and our favorite band Ben&Ben have teamed up for an epic video which made our hearts sing and got us flipping our hair!

This was a total fangirl moment for Queen P who became an instant fan of Ben&Ben after discovering one of the MYX chart-topping group's songs in 2019. She was visibly excited to finally talk to her OPM idols and fellow Cream Silk ambassadors in their virtual meetup.

Ben&Ben's frontmen Paolo and Miguel - known for their heartfelt anthems and signature long hair - were equally starstruck with Pia. The two still couldn't believe that they now belonged to the Cream Silk family alongside the popular beauty queen.

Of course, Pia just had to put the Ben&Ben members' hair flip skills to the test during the fun tutorial session - and they definitely nailed it! The former Miss Universe also shared some tips on how to confidently strut on the catwalk and properly deliver the Cream Silk taglines which they all aced as well.

As a reward for teaching Ben&Ben how to be perfect Cream Silk endorsers, the 9-piece band serenaded Queen P with the #CreamSilkArawAraw song which gave her (and us) goosebumps! As if that kilig moment wasn't enough, Pia even got to live out her secret dream of becoming a singer. She performed her own beautiful rendition of the song, using the Cream Silk bottle as her microphone.
