The 15th Screen Producers Australia Awards announced Matchbox Pictures as the Media Super Production Business of the Year during the Screen Forever Conference at Melbourne’s Palladium last week.

With a diverse output, Matchbox specialises in television drama, children’s programming, factual and entertainment content, animation and feature films for the domestic and international marketplace. Most recently, Matchbox produced the popular reality television series Real Housewives of Melbourne, feature film Ali’s Wedding, Lally Katz’s comedy mini-series Stories I Want To Tell You In Person for the ABC, and the youth television drama series Nowhere Boys for ABC Television.

Screen Producers Australia’s CEO Matthew Deaner said: “The Screen Producers Australia Awards were born from a desire to recognise and honour Australian screen businesses who create and support high quality and outstanding screen content. Matchbox Pictures have established themselves as one of Australia’s most successful production companies, consistently producing original and entertaining stories for television audiences both locally and internationally.”

A special highlight of the 2015 Screen Producers Australia Awards was the inclusion of the Short Film Production of the Year category, which provides a platform for Australia’s emerging and mid-career producers.
