2-Step Submission + Judging Categories
This year, as we follow a continuous improvement mantra for NTIA, we’ve added a two-step process to determine the finalists across these categories.
The following categories are NOT voted categories.
Nominees are required to complete an online submission to confirm their NTIA nomination (now closed).
All submissions will be marked by an independent assessor. The 5 highest scoring submissions in each category will process through to being a Finalist.
The 5 Finalists will be required to make a presentation to the NTIA Judging Pannel. Judging will take place between Monday 28 May - Wednesday 6 June.

The Judging period for the NTIA Finalists is Monday 28 May - Wednesday 6 June 2018.
Please note, due to the time commitments of the AFTA NTIA Judging Panel, these dates are unable to be altered. If a person is unable to attend their scheduled Finalist presentation, they may nominate an alternate in the case of company categories. No alternates are permitted in the case of individual categories.
AFTA has compiled a list of the top 5 tips for those Finalists making a presentation to the AFTA Judging Panel.
These tips are based on feedback from previous year's judging and will assist you in preparing for your presentation and best utilising the time allowed.
