As announced last week, local screen icon Shortland Street will be named as the 2019 Huawei Mate30 Pro TV Legend. It is the first time a standalone television show has been honoured with this award and it is reflective of Shortland Street’s ongoing success, its significance in New Zealand popular culture and the show’s commitment to diversity and inclusion. Furthermore, throughout its 27-year history, Shortland Street has maintained a stellar reputation as a training ground that continues to provide an incomparable launching pad for New Zealand screen industry professionals, including both on-screen talent as well as the countless people who work behind the scenes.

The New Zealand Television Craft Awards, hosted by Screen Auckland will be announced on Wednesday 6th November at GridAKL and the Huawei Mate30 Pro New Zealand Television Awards gala ceremony will be held Thursday 21st November at the Aotea Centre.
