In 2018, the ATG presented the "Curtain Call" awards with a new-format presentation-style event, held at the historic Regal Theatre, in Kensington Park.

The night was hosted by the fabulously entertaining David Gauci, and included food, drinks and plenty of time for socialising for the 260 guests that attended.

Congratulations are extended to all of the nominees for being recognised for excellence within their respective areas.

In 2018 the "Curtain Call" Awards went to:
