OFFICIAL EVENT UPDATE
To all our Supporters
Unfortunately, as can often be the case, due to circumstances beyond our control, The BLAC Awards 2021, will now be streamed as a virtual.
First and foremost, our hearts go out to those who have been directly or indirectly impacted by current issues; our thoughts and condolences go out to those who have lost loved ones, and we extend our heartfelt wishes for a full recovery to those who are sick.
Even as we deal with all the uncertainties around this time, our team remains laser-focused on awarding our grassroots communities for their selfless acts. Our commitment to the communities remains stronger than ever before because our company was founded on 3 core values – Honouring, Celebrating, and Embracing our community greats – and those values continue to guide everything we do.
We’ve worked very closely with our highly experienced production crew, RockIt Event Production, to finally announce the overall winners.
We have been deeply moved by the comments made by the judges during the final selection process, and were as excited as everyone else to hear the names of the winners!
The online virtual event was screened on Thursday 23 September 2021. It was well-attended and well-received; we thank you for making it such a success!
Our dedication to you remains unchanged, and we know that in the very near future, we’ll overcome these adversities, and BLAC UK will return in all its glory; tackling the pertinent issues which affect our community on a daily basis, and shining the spotlight (quite literally) on those individuals and organisations who are doing their part to address the deficits, disparities, and disenfranchisements.
We are sincerely sorry for any unfulfilled expectations and inconveniences this sudden change to proceedings may have caused, especially to the young people and the youth organisations we’d been looking forward to working with – giving them the opportunity to be ‘Young BLAC Ambassadors’ for the occasion.
The IBIS Hotel have refund hotel room bookings in full.
All ticket-holders have been contacted for full refunds.
Your understanding, and continued support is greatly appreciated. We long to see you in person soon.
The BLAC Awards Team
