Martin del Rosario at 24th Asian Television Awards

Following the successful celebration of its 24th edition in Manila early this year, the Asian Television Awards (ATA) has announced it is partnership with the Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP) in the quest for the best of Filipino talents and entertainment programs in the country to compete on Asia Pacific’s largest platform for content makers.

The 25th ATA is set to be held from Jan. 15 to 17, 2021 in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. 

The Asian Television Awards has more than 56 categories that are divided across the four groupings of Digital, Performance, Technical and Creative, and Programming. At the 24th ATA in Manila, the Philippines scored victories in several categories.

Early this year, Best Leading Male Performance was awarded to Martin del Rosario for his gender-bending role in “Born Beautiful,” while Best News Presenter or Anchor went to Catherine Yap-Yang of “Market Edge with Cathy Yang” on the ANC business channel. 

Other winners in past editions include Gina Pareño, Eula Valdes, Ice Seguerra, Roderick Paulate, and Michael V.

The submission for entries for the 25th Asian Television Awards is until Sept. 6, 2020. All entries must have been aired or premiered between July 1, 2019 to Aug. 31, 2020.
