There will be no more New Zealand Television Awards, convenor ThinkTV says.

ThinkTV general manager Rob Hoar said the decision to axe the awards from this year onward, came after discussions from major partners TVNZ and Mediaworks.

"The Awards have been through some turbulent times in the last few years with the loss of a key sponsor in 2011 and with the Screen Directors' Guild of New Zealand pulling out of what was the joint Film and Television Awards at the beginning of 2012," he said.

The awards have been running for the past five years, and honoured directors, producers, actors and journalists for their work on the small screen.
