Final Finalist CMAA Awards


“With the withdrawal of Adam Harvey & Troy Cassar-Daley from categories in which they were nominated finalists, the Board of the CMAA has been required to re-visit the voting /nomination process. Organising a re-vote was not possible given the timeframe. Equitable and fair treatment of the nominated finalists has been our central concern, and we have therefore decided to go with four finalists in those categories with the results as they have been judged. We believe this the best solution to ensure the integrity of the Awards.”

Kind regards,

Dobe Newton

President
