About the Gemini Awards

          Honouring all aspects of English-language television
          in Canada, the Gemini Awards annually recognize over 60
          categories of achievement in Craft, Program and Performance

          What is the history behind the Gemini Statue? 

          Since 1986, the Gemini sculpture, created by designer Scott
          Thornley, has symbolized the height of excellence in Canadian
          television and the dualities of TV - creativity and
technology,           the
          talent behind and in front of the cameras, illusion
and                  reality, and the dual nature of the Canadian
Television           industry itself -
          English and French programming. The Gemini finds its twin
in             its French-language counterpart, the Prix Gémeaux.

                        13th Gemini Awards
