Asian Television Awards on its 25th Year, Garners Hundreds of Nominations from Asia Pacific

2021 marks the 25th anniversary of the Asian Television Awards (ATA) which will feature a new show format, given the logistical limitations of live events this pandemic. Since its founding in 1996, the Awards have recognized actors, directors, producers, hosts and presenters, alongside Asian programs and TV networks.


The ATA events kicked-off in Phnom Penh, Cambodia in June this year after successfully holding the Awards in Malaysia and the Philippines. This year’s awards ceremony will be a two-day event happening from 15 - 16 January 2021. 

Kicking off the ceremonies on Friday, January 15th will be ATA Technical and Creative Awards which will be streamed on the Awards’ official social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Weibo) starting 8:00 PM.  30 awards will be presented on this show including a new category for Best Direction (Non-Fiction).

On January 16th, the much awaited ATA Live Show premieres at 8:00 PM and will be aired simultaneously online and on TV channels of broadcast partner networks around Asia, including Colours and TV5, the ATA’s main broadcast partners in the Philippines.

“The Asian TV Awards is a gathering of broadcast media companies and senior media executives comprising CEOs, Executive Producers and Directors. These are decision makers who can influence what to film, when to film and where to film. It is an opportunity for them to make content about or engage talents from the host country and therefore generate publicity about arts and culture, tourist destinations and even business opportunities.” shares ATA Spokesperson Lee Keen Whye. 

International creative firm Wonder Paradise Group spearheads this year’s milestone celebration. CEO Alan Eucharis shares how grateful he is to be a partner of the ATA since 2018, saying “The Awards has evolved on its own organically through a long journey. Moving forward, Wonder Paradise with its regional network is well poised to assist ATA in its mission to recognize both emerging and experienced talents in front of and behind the camera.”

Wallace Ang returns to host the festivities for the third time; and will be joined by actor Benjamin Josiah Tan from Singapore, anchor Ji Xiao Jun from China, beauty queen Rennie Lau from Malaysia and ATA 2020’s “Best Actress in a Supporting Role” Anyarin Terathananpat from Thailand. Wallace Ang currently has a plethora of television commercials and print advertisements under his belt, and has worked with global brands such as Adidas and Hugo Boss; Ji Xiao Jun has presented for major events such as the Beijing Olympics, Guangzhou Asian Games and this year’s 24th Asian Television Awards; Rennie Lau is the first runner-up of Miss Astro Chinese International Pageant; and Anyarin Terathananpat has been a household name in the Thai TV industry since 2009.


Expected to perform are actor, singer and dancer Alfred Sng; singer Sherraine Law; pop newcomer HAVEN; and singer Emiliano Cyrus from Singapore. Singers Ernie Zakri and Lee Pei Ling from Malaysia, Dat Ozy from Vietnam and multimedia artist Sam Concepcion from the Philippines will also grace the awards show with their performances. 

The 25th Asian Television Awards will be televised live to 500 million homes across a network of regional broadcast partner networks on January 16, 2021 at 8:00 PM: Formosa TV (Taiwan), Viu TV (Hong Kong), Jiangsu Broadcast (China), Cignal Colours and TV5 (Philippines), Bangkok TV (Thailand), Today TV (Vietnam), Channel O, Citra Entertainment and the Indonesia Channel (Indonesia), and Bayon TV (Cambodia).
