ATOM Awards Finalists Highlight Key Issues and Stories from the Indigenous Community

MELBOURNE – Monday 10 October, 2011 – This year’ s 2011 ATOM Awards finalists have put the indigenous community in the picture and shone a light on some of the important issues and stories from indigenous culture. Ancestral storytelling, historical documentaries, gripping fictional drama, cultural investigations and Indigenous health and well being are just some of the topics featured in the 2011 ATOM Awards finalist productions.

“It is fantastic to see such a strong indigenous focus across a number of award categories from the 2011 ATOM Awards finalist,” said Simon Wilmot, ATOM Awards Executive Officer.

“Each year the ATOM Awards presents the Best Indigenous Education Resource category, which includes productions that have been specifically produced for the purpose of educating the indigenous community or produced by the indigenous community for the purpose of educating the wider community,” noted Mr Wilmot.

If you would like more information, or would like to interview any of our finalists, or the ATOM Awards Executive Officer, Simon Wilmot, please don’t hesitate to contact me and I will be more than happy to assist.
