POSTPONEMENT OF JAA AUSTRALASIAN JEWELLERY AWARDS - JULY 2021

Having closely monitored the COVID-19 outbreaks across Australia recently, the responses from state governments, as well as listening to Awards entrants' feedback, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the 26th instalment of the JAA Australasian Jewellery Awards.

The success and safety of the numerous parties involved in the Awards program is our priority and this will continue to be the case.

We understand the JAA Awards are a significant event in the calendar of many jewellers and designers, and we apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused.

New dates can be viewed at jaa.com.au/awards with entries due 9 November 2021
