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
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.

The 13th Gemini Awards Opening Night Gala will be held on
October 2, the Industry Gala on October 3, and the Broadcast
Gala airing live on CBC will take place on October 4, 1998.
