LONDON – March 30th 2020
Understandably we have had a number of messages from people asking what the effect of the Covid-19 outbreak will be on the Prowler Awards.
Public gatherings have now been banned by the UK Government, and we anticipate event restrictions will continue for some time as cases reach their peak and the Government has also warned that more lives will be lost.
It is for these reasons that the event team have, with great sadness, decided to postpone the Prowler Awards.
To go ahead in the middle of a public health emergency would be irresponsible, not only for our visitors but also for the communities and loved ones they return home to.
We all must play a part to ensure that we do all we can to reduce the chance and speed of onward transmission.
We know this news will be hugely disappointing for many people who were hoping to come to celebrate the many achievements and the contribution made by the European Gay Porn Industry and we apologise from the bottom of our hearts for the inconvenience caused to you with travel and hotels. Hopefully, you will all understand why we have had to take this difficult decision, which we have not done without considerable thought and discussion.
Our decision will also affect the Pre Party which will be postponed.
We will do everything in our power to reschedule this year’s Prowler Awards to a date towards the end of this year, but can’t rule out the possibility of a date in 2021 but we promise that will announce the date to you all so soon as we possibly can so travel and accommodation can be rebooked.
These are now closed and we will publish the results on Thursday 2nd April as intended, however, voting will not get underway until we are able to announce the new event date. Please don’t worry, we will give everybody lots of time to make their votes count when the time comes.
Purchased Tickets – OutSavvy:
The ticket that you have now will remain valid for the new date – if, when the date is announced, it is no longer possible for you to attend, a refund will be offered through our ticket agents OutSavvy. We very much hope the transport providers and hotels will assist anybody who has already made travel and accommodation arrangements but please go directly to the service provider to enquire about the options available to you.
Above all else, the Prowler Awards team wish to send our heartfelt, and most sincere love to every single person in our important industry worldwide and stand in solidarity with you all.
