Axis 2020 entry call held up

Editor News Make a Comment

AUCKLAND, Today: The Comms Council is celebrating the Axis Awards’ 40th birthday with a reminder that the 2020 call for entries will be opening “soon”.

The entry call was originally intended to go live last Tuesday, but events have conspired to push the date out to such a degree that the council cannot yet announce a definitive date.

But “soon” means soon – so we can expect an announcement any day now.
