Comedy Program

Comedy Program entries for the 8th AACTA Awards are now closed.

Eligibility Requirements

In order to be eligible, a Comedy Program must:

  • Be an Australian production produced for television, video-on-demand or subscription-video-on-demand.
  • Have had the first episode of the entered series / season or, in the case of a single standalone program, the entire production broadcast in Australia for the first time between 21 October 2017 and 27 October 2018.
  • Be a television program that primarily contains comedic content and includes situational comedy, sketch series, panel, quiz, personality hosted/chat or stand up.
  • In the case of a single, standalone program, the entrant must submit the entire production for consideration in all categories.
  • In the case of a series, the entrant can submit up to two episodes for judging. These episodes will be judged as a single entry for the Best Comedy Program Award but as individual entries for all other Awards.
