Last year's Television awards, saw Brendan O'Carroll receive the Irish Academy's  Lifetime Award presented by Gay Byrne.  This year so far, the 2016 IFTA Film & Drama Awards have already taken place in April this year, where Liam Neeson received the Irish Academy award for his outstanding contribution to Cinema presented by the President of Ireland, Michael D Higgins.

The independent process of the Awards is best international practice across submissions, viewing process, platforms and the voting process will be independently audited. The Awards production is a culmination of year-round intensive work by a small Academy team across funding, partnerships, planning and co-ordination with production companies, broadcasters, state bodies, distributors, studios, agents, reps and publicists across Submissions, Screenings (Cinema & Online), international Jury Panels (each chaired by an Academy Member), Voting, Nominations, national Announcements, communication, PR, Event planning, logistics, transport, accommodation, film clips, content, visuals, statuette production, and event production – guests, set, clips, graphics, script, etc.

The Academy has been dedicated to nurturing and supporting the film and television industry in Ireland since 2003, through its extensive Learning programme of Academy monthly events each year and through honouring, rewarding and celebrating Irish creative talent at the annual Irish Academy Awards Ceremony.
