The Singaporean government has withdrawn its sponsorship of the Asian Television Awards.
In a statement to Mumbrella, Singapore’s Infocomm Media Development Authority said it had pulled its funding from the 2018 awards. It has also removed the ceremony from the annual Singapore Media Festival, an event supported by the country’s tourism board.
A spokesman said: “The Asian Television Awards (ATA) Pte Ltd and IMDA, which hosts the Singapore Media Festival, have mutually agreed to terminate the sponsorship agreement for the Asian Television Awards.”
Earlier this year, Mumbrella revealed that Contineo Media was suffering from cash flow problems after it was accused of failing to pay its staffs’ salaries and Central Provident Fund.
The company has now left its office in Ubi Avenue and, according to a notice posted on the front door, its furnishings were auctioned off earlier this month by the CPF Board.
However, despite its troubles, the awards has been earmarked to take place on December 7 and 8 at Suntec Exhibition Centre.
In a call for entries seen by Mumbrella, potential nominees are now asked to send their entry forms and fees to another company owned by Wong named Clarus Marketing, which according to Singapore’s Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority has until now been inactive since its inception five years ago.

RBKD: Y’know how it’s just funny that Toggle calls Rui En as le wild Pokémon? But better still when they claim that they are “lemming to watch her act again.”
