“Our renewed partnership with AACTA, including the newly created Inside the AACTA Studio, allows us to continue to recognise the outstanding work of our burgeoning creative community and take it to the next level.”
The partnership includes presenting rights, broadcasting rights, marketing, PR, and content production.
