One of the much looked forward corporate sector sponsored events, Raigam Tele’es 2023 will be held at Shangri La, Colombo on March 30, 2024. Sampath Bank will be the main sponsor.
In 2005, Raigam Tele’es was launched by the famous local business conglomerate in the FMCG industry, the Raigam Group of Companies to fill the gap that had been created in conducting a regular award ceremony for the television industry due to the unstable situation in the country.
Today, Raigam Tele’es has become a prominent television festival in Sri Lanka with the record of conducting such an event consecutively for nineteen years.
The highest quality standards maintained in the judging process, innovative presentation and broad coverage through almost all the television channels and social media are the success factors of the festival.
Raigam Tele’es has pioneered in introducing many features to the industry including announcement of nominations at a grand function prior to the main event. While the award winners are benefited with cash awards, all the nominees are benefited with a valuable insurance cover and testimonials.
Snr. DGM – Marketing and Customer Care, Sampath Bank. Tharaka Ranwala said that they came to sponsor this as it will help the television industry that needs encouragement of this nature.
A wide range of cinema and television festivals are conducted at both domestic and international levels in order to uplift the quality and creativity of relevant products through appreciation of good work done by the artists, producers and institutions, annually,” said Dr. Liyanage.
These festivals result in setting benchmarks for the industry. Sri Lankans experienced the first ever indigenous film festival, Sarasaviya Cinema Award Ceremony in May 1964 (sponsored by Lake House) and since then a few more award ceremonies have been introduced by the government as well as non-governmental bodies, of which some are not visible regularly while few others are not in existence today.
