MUMBAI: They were the real stars at the Sixth Indian Telly Awards Technical Nite. The production teams that sweat it out to set new standards of technical quality, the marketing whizkids and ad sales teams that work quietly behind the scenes to build up the channel and the brands around it, the programmers who brainstorm over endless cups of coffee to hit upon that one single bright idea that will get the audience to sit up and take notice.

Indiantelevision.com, along with its partners Zee Network, Aaj Tak, CNN IBN, IBN 7, Times Now, Zee Cinema, Radio City, Bright Advertising, Rajasthan Patrika and Mid Day, Fun Cinema, CMCG India, Tellychakkar.com and AnimationXpress.com, dedicated the event to recognize and laud the efforts of all those individuals, teams and channels who made television a viewing pleasure in the past year.

The awards event was a sparkling affair held at the St Andrew's Auditorium in Bandra.

In Indiantelevision founder and CEO Anil Wanvari's words, "This is really what television is all about and it gives me great pride and satisfaction that we at Indian television have had the opportunity, for the sixth year running, to acknowledge and reward all the great work that this vibrant industry is delivering. Happy Viewing!"
