2009 AWGIE Nominees Announced
The AWGIE Awards are the Australian Writers Guild annual awards for excellence in screen, television, stage and radio writing. This years winners will be announced on 28 August at Doltone House in Sydney.
2009 marks the 42nd annual awards. Presented annually since 1967, the AWGIES are unique in the industry in that they are the only writers awards judged solely by writers, and the judging is based on the written script - the intention of the writer rather than the finished product. In order to be eligible scripts must have been produced in the calendar year prior to the year of the AWGIE presentation.
