Publish date:

The 2012 Conch Awards, originally scheduled for 30 May, have been rescheduled to Wednesday, 19 September 2012. Award organisers said they’ve received a large number of entries after a call for nominations in March. “We have been overwhelmed by the fantastic response to our call for entries. Celebrating the quality of work in the UK in the essence behind the awards and we want to ensure that everyone has enough time to put their best entries together,” said event director Charlotte Wheeler. “It has taken longer than expected to prepare the shortlist, this in turn left little time for the shortlisted nominees to gather the required material for final judging. We apologise for any inconvenience in changing the date of the ceremony, but assure everyone that it will be worth the wait.” Despite a change of date, the venue for the Awards remains the same, and will be held at the Mayfair Hotel in London. www.conchawards.co.uk
