After extensive consultation with the Industry, the Event Awards 2021 Ceremony will join the long list of 2021 events to move online due to effects of Covid-19.
In a perhaps unusual move, the ceremony will be delivered as a series of bite sized broadcasts delivered each evening over 12 days from October 20 – 31 capping off a month-long Industry celebration during which the work of every entrant will be highlighted.
The Australian Event Awards will be highlighting every Awards entrant during October 2021, thereby showcasing the individuals and organisations in the industry and what they have been able to achieve despite Covid-19.
These highlights will include an image or video of the event or achievement, accompanied by a short overview and recognition of a few of the individuals that were integral to the operation.
Each highlight will be published predominantly on our social media channels. Attention will also be drawn to the highlights through our e-newsletters to the database and our media partners.
The plan for 2021 is that National Finalists will not be made public ahead of time. Instead the finalists in each category will be announced just prior to the winner announcement, allowing each entrant’s achievements to be highlighted via our social media channels during October.
Following detailed feedback, our team collaborated closely with the Co-Chairs and Judges to rework the Awards categories to include virtual, hybrid and live events.

In 2020, entry costs were reduced in order to recognise the difficulties facing the industry in the current climate. This year, entry costs will remain discounted for businesses across the industry. View the 2021 entry costs here.
