The National Television Awards are the UK and Ireland’s leading TV awards event voted on exclusively by the British public. Each January millions of votes are cast by phone, telephone and web for the nation’s most beloved television shows and celebrities. The results are then revealed live at London’s O2 in a spectacular event that is broadcast across the ITV network.

NTA1Since 2008, Indigo TV, the makers of the NTAs, have appointed PromoVeritas to oversee all aspects of the voting, from drafting the T&Cs to handing out the winning envelopes. Our broadcast verification experts monitor the voting throughout the entry period, auditing all the raw data received and paying close attention to any unusual voting patterns or duplicate votes. We also audit the postal facility to ensure that these votes are being entered fairly.

The PromoVeritas touch

Voting for the NTA’s closes at midday on the day of the show. After a final check of the votes for any anomalies our adjudicators produce a verified list of winners that is used to prepare the golden envelopes backstage. One of our adjudicators then calmly hands the envelopes to the award presenters – a process which ensures that the NTAs remain one of the highlights of the TV calendar for all the right reasons.

“PromoVeritas have consistently provided an excellent service reviewing terms & conditions, checking websites and systems as well as running comprehensive integrity checks on the phone, web & postal votes. Their approach is always positive and insightful based on extensive experience and knowledge. A pleasure to work with.” – Andy Bates, Senior Producer, Indigo TV
