For the second year in a row the TV Week Logie Awards have been cancelled.
This year’s ceremony was scheduled to take place in Queensland in November but Are Media, publisher of TV Week, has decided that the continued unsettled situation with various COVID restrictions and border closures has made planning the event untenable.
“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,” Group Publisher Fiona Connolly said in a statement from Are Media. “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.”
It is unclear why Are Media has resisted maintaining continuity with the awards via virtual means twice now when other major awards ceremonies, including the Academy Awards, have been able to do so amid the pandemic.
A date for the 2022 TV Week Logie Awards is to be confirmed.
