The Effie Awards SA, which celebrate and award effectiveness in the marketing and communications industry, will be postponed to October 7 and 8 in line with the developments around Covid-19 and in the interests of keeping all parties involved as safe as possible.

The Association for Communication & Advertising (ACA) will postpone both the summit and gala event. While the plan is to hold the events in October, the ACA cautions that because of the uncertainty around the outbreak, there may be further changes that will affect the new calendar.

Early-bird deadline: Tuesday, May 5

On-time deadline: Thursday, June 18

Last-minute deadline: Thursday, July 9

Round 1: Thursday, August 6
