The virus outbreak which is causing much disruption to the world should not affect the early parts of the CMA process. Entries are submitted online, and the judging process is mainly conducted online. If necessary, the judging meetings and interviews can be conducted by video conference.
At this stage, we hope that the social distancing measures introduced recently will be relaxed by November, allowing us to proceed with the gala dinner presentation, but if they are not, we will still judge the entries, announce winners, and award trophies as we have every year since 2001. It will just be a little different!
If you have any questions, do ask!
