On Sunday May 8 the 58th annual Logie Awards were held at the Crown Palladium in Melbourne celebrating and recognising Australian television in all of its facets.

Two drama series, which picked up awards on the evening, are a testament to the connections and professional networks formed by students while they are at this school, many of whom continue to collaborate years and decades after graduation.

Glitch, which won the Logie for ‘Most Outstanding Drama Series’ comprised six AFTRS graduates including its creator and writer Tony Ayres (1986) along with writers Keir Wilkins (2012) and Guila Sandler (1998), executive producer Debbie Lee (1990), cinematographer  Simon Chapman (2001) and art director Juliet John (1996)

AFTRS graduates also fill the key creative roles of the 2016 winner for ‘Most Outstanding Children’s Program’ Ready for This, a 14-part ABC3 Children’s Drama created/written by graduate Liz Doran (1993) with fellow AFTRS graduates; director Tony Krawitz (2000), writers Steven McGregor (2001) Guila Sandler (1998) and Greg Waters (2002), editor Mark Perry (1986) production designer Felicity Abbott (1998) and art director Sam Wilde (2002).

AFTRS congratulates all of the 2016 Logie winners for their achievements.
