The Silver Logie for Best New Talent is an award presented at the Australian TV Week Logie Awards. It was first awarded at the 22nd Annual TV Week Logie Awards ceremony, held in 1980 when the award was originally called Most Popular New Talent.[1] For the 2016 ceremony, it was renamed Best New Talent.[2] The award is given to honour a standout performance of a new talent in an Australian program. It may or may not be their first television appearance, however it is their first major television role.[3] The winner and nominees of Most Popular New Talent are chosen by the public through an online voting survey on the TV Week website.[4]

This award category was eliminated in 1999 and replaced by the Most Popular New Male Talent and Most Popular New Female Talent categories.[5] After a 15-year absence, the Most Popular New Talent category was reintroduced in 2014 to replace the gender specific categories.[6] Neighbours and Home and Away have the most recipients of this award, with four wins each.
