About Indian Telly Awards

The Indian Telly Awards, often referred to as the Tellys and founded in the year 2000 are presented by ITV 2.0 productions to celebrate and recognize talent and hard work in the television ecosystem. The formal ceremony at which the awards are presented takes place in Mumbai.

Indian Telly Awards was India's television industry's biggest awards night. More than a 1000 TV actors and stars, producers, writers and directors congregated to celebrate the best performances on television.

The Indian Telly Awards is an annual award for excellence both on-screen and behind-the-scenes of television in India. To earn an Indian Telly Award, an entry must demonstrate ground breaking and consistent performance through the year. With a 15-year reputation of awarding high caliber entries, the prestige of being recognised as an Indian Telly Awards winner is an enviable achievement.

This year, The Indian Telly Awards will honour the regional language television industry, and we start with the City of joy Bengal.
