For the second year in a row, the TV WEEK Logie Awards have been cancelled due to the pandemic.
Before Australia was ravaged by the Delta outbreak, the 62nd awards were scheduled to take place at The Star Gold Coast.
But with borders closed until late this year, it seems the glamorous night is just going to have to wait.
Are Media, the organisers behind the event, said the unpredictable COVID situation “regrettably provides organisers with no certainty to plan ahead for a safe event for guests to attend”.
With the show cancelled, the eligibility for next year will be from January 1 2021 to March 31 2022.
“We are disappointed to have to cancel this year’s TV WEEK Logie Awards after charging ahead with plans to return for a bigger than ever event on the Gold Coast this November,” said Fiona Connolly, the group publisher of Are Media.
“Unfortunately, our current COVID cases and travel restrictions leave us no choice. But we will return to Queensland mid-2022 and promise the TV WEEK Logie Awards will bring an overdue and deserved night of glamour, celebration and recognition of Australia’s outstanding television industry.”
A new date is yet to be announced but is expected to be revealed early next year.
