Among so many other tele award ceremonies, the most glamorous happening on the calendar of the Kingdom of Raigam is the Tele awards night. The company is happy to announce that the Secretariat under the sponsorship of the Kingdom of Raigam is now busy finalising the innumerable tasks that go to make the night, a night to remember. The 2009 Ceremony will be held at the Sri Lanka Exhibition and Convention Centre (SLECC) on the evening of Friday, May 7 this year.

A press briefing related to this glamorous event was held recently at the Jubilee room of the Galle Face Hotel.
“This will be the sixth Raigam Tele Awards ceremony,” said chairman and chief executive officer (CEO) of the Kingdom of Raigam, Ravi Liyanage.
He further stated that five years ago the Raigam Tele Awards was gifted to the nation by the Kingdom of Raigam with the object of appreciation of the talents, creativities and contributions of tele creators and institutions devoted to the progress of the tele industry and also to be a beacon to give direction to the gifted artistes of the second generation.

When looking back, all the past Raigam Tele Awards ceremonies were an undisputed success because they were able to afford a novel experience to the members of the teledrama industry while evaluating in the independent manner unique to Raigam was the main reason behind their success.
“The Accolades, good wishes and response we received were truly encouraging. We salute all the artistes, critics and media institutions for their help support and encouragement,” he added.
Taking into consideration all the constructive criticism and advice, the Raigam Tele Awards secretariat is ready to make this year’s Raigam Tele Awards ceremony a memorable one.
Commenting at the same media briefing, managing director of the Kingdom of Raigam, Ganaka Amarasinghe stated that the teledramas telecast in 2009 over television (TV) channels excluding cable TV and paid channels in Sri Lanka will be considered for awards in 2009.
“On this occasion teledramas telecast daily or weekly and not exceeding 100 episodes will be evaluated,” said Amarasinghe.

He also stated that teledramas for the ceremony are now being received and the final date for the creations to be accepted for evaluation will be February 20.
“We are happy to announce that this year too the awards ceremony will feature teledrama episodes, dramas, dance and other special items to make this awards ceremony a night to remember,” stated Amarasinghe.
According to Amarasinghe Mega teledramas which created so much interest recently will be considered only for the popular segment.
A special feature of the Raigam Tele Awards ceremony is the awards for personalities and institutions that helped advancement of the TV and teledrama industry and an honorary presentation to a very special personality.

“Selection of most popular teledrama actor, actress and the teledrama as well as mega teledrama will be by viewers vote. Voting will start on April 1 and viewers will be able to send their vote via short message service (SMS) to mobile number 077 3337337 until midnight on May 5,” said Amarasinghe.
Liyanage again emphasised that their theme for last year’s award ceremony was ‘Sigiriya’ and this year it would be ‘Love’ represented by the Taj Mahal.
“We thought of focussing our attention towards the theme ‘Love’ this year because most of the teledramas that were telecast last year were based on that theme,” he added.
A number of 25 participants who correctly name the winners through SMS will be presented with two tickets to enjoy the awards ceremony this year. Pic by Ravindra Dharmathilake
