The main award of the night, the Elizabeth R Award for Exceptional Contribution to Public Service Broadcasting, was presented to Jean-Gabriel Manguy for his work as Head of Radio Australia.

He left Radio Australia - the international radio service of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation - in 2007 after 10 years with the broadcaster.

Mr Manguy is now working as Organisation Development Advisor to Vanuatu Broadcasting Corporation, on a project alongside the former CEO of Fiji Broadcasting, Francis Herman.

Doordarshan-India and All India Radio took home two of the four programming awards - the CBA World Bank Award for a programme on water development issues, and the CBA UNESCO Award for an innovative children’s science programme.

The CBA Amnesty International Award for a programme featuring human rights was won by SBS-Australia for a programme about Muslim female lifesavers on Australian beaches, and the CBA Rolls Royce Award for an exceptional news feature was won by BBC World for a programme about bonded child labour in India.
