This year, after a bit of drama at the 2014 awards, The Irish Film & Television Academy (IFTA) announced that the annual IFTA Awards Ceremony has been split into two separate distinct smaller Award ceremonies ie; a Film & Drama Awards and a Television Awards. Each Ceremony will celebrate and honour the very best of Irish creative talent working in their respective fields across Film & Drama production and Television Programme making. The IFTA Film & Drama Awards take place on 24th May 2015 in Dublin, while the IFTA Television Awards will follow on 17th October 2015. Now what will we wear to the awards?
