Antenna Awards
Awarded for Excellence in community television
Country Australia
First awarded 2004 (2004)
Last awarded 2014 (2014)

The Antenna Awards is an annual Australian awards ceremony which recognizes outstanding community television programmes broadcast on stations of Australia's Channel 31. The Antennas, which began in 2004, have been traditionally hosted by C31 Melbourne. The awards are presented at a gala ceremony in Federation Square.

Nominations are forwarded by community television volunteers and audience members. From the pool of nominees, a final list is selected for each award. More than 500 initial nominations are received each year.

The 'Viewers Choice' award (in which viewers can vote on their favourite program) and the 'Best Contribution to Community Television' are the only two awards not judged by a panel through shortlisted nominees.

The 2014 Antenna Awards were held on 1 October, at the Deakin Edge in Federation Square, Melbourne.[1]
