With four fundamentals to my being,
I am named after my father and reside 'down under'.
I was born in 1958 and each year I become one year older.
I can be gold, I can be silver, and I can be bronze as well.
I appear in public once a year by helping to celebrate the industry I am associated with.

What am I?


Answer

The Logie Award.

The Logie Awards are the Australian television industry awards, which have been presented annually since 1958. They are the approximate Australian equivalent of the Emmy Awards. Renamed by Graham Kennedy after he won the first 'Star Of The Year award', the name 'Logie' awards honours John Logie Baird who invented the television. Awards are given in four main categories, but the most widely-publicised award (if not necessarily the most prestigious) is the Gold Logie, which is awarded to the 'most popular personality on Australian television'.
