Australia’s largest Indigenous awards night looks back on the year that was in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australia and, year after year, comes up with the winners contributing on the national stage and at the grassroots in communities across Australia.
Nominations are still open for the 2013 Deadly Awards at http://www.deadlys.com.au and there’s still time to have your say on who you think is Deadly. Nominations close on 30 June 2013, with finalists announced at the official launch of Deadlys on 18 July.
The Deadlys will be held on 10 September at the Sydney Opera House in a gala event, including a Red Carpet, Sunset Ceremony and mainstage show.
“The underlying spirit of the Deadlys is always defined by what is happening within our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community. This year is different to 2012 because it’s been a different year in the Indigenous arts, sports and music scene,” Executive Producer Gavin Jones says.
The Deadly Awards are now in their 19th year and enjoy significant support from the community. “We are preparing for a show that offers the highest standard of performance from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists, and one which puts achievement and outstanding contribution centre stage,”
Gavin says. “One of the most enjoyable aspects for me as executive producer of the Deadlys is the opportunity to showcase our unique Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture to the wider Australian public, and also to put forward our remarkable role models – the finalists and winners in the award categories – on a national stage and honour that achievement.”
Once finalists are announced on 18 July, voting will be open to the public across the award categories. Online nominations can be lodged at http://www.deadlys.com.au The Deadly Awards are produced by the Deadly Vibe Group who also produce Vibe 3on3, Deadly Vibe, Deadly Sounds, InVibe, Move It Mob Style and Deadly TV.
