Same prestige but different delivery: the awards went virtual for this event.
The STAR Awards 2021 was broadcast live on a virtual platform on the evening of Thursday 15 April, giving us all the certainty that the event would go ahead in any COVID alert level.
The new live virtual event replaced the COVID-postponed STAR Awards Gala Dinner, originally set for late 2020.
A major purpose of the STAR Awards is the chance to say thanks. And in the face of Covid-19 – when so many of you showed true resilience and commitment to your jobs as essential workers – it was heartfelt thanks indeed.
So we were delighted that broadcasting the STAR Awards 2021 online gave us the opportunity to thank and include more people in our sector than could usually attend the event in person.
