About NT Summit & Awards

The news television space in India is a dynamic landscape and has consistently shown growth with channels in multiple languages being broadcast everyday and many more players awaiting permission to launch.

In 2007, Indian Television Dot Com Pvt. Ltd. constituted the News Television Awards to honour the people who make this industry what it is. The initiative met with tremendous success as 550 entries poured in from various Hindi and English news channels. Since then, the NT Awards have become bigger and better and from 2011, awards were also conferred to achievers in Telugu and Marathi news channels.

In all, 40 categories covering programming, personality, channel and special awards have been drawn up this year. The NT Awards will be presented to channel programmers, anchors, presenters, technicians, producers, editors, reporters and management.
