After the cancellation of the National NAIDOC Awards 2021 in Mparntwe (Alice Springs), the National NAIDOC Committee and our key partners had been working towards a gala Awards Ceremony at the Sydney Opera House on Saturday 3 July.

However, following the recent announcements by the NSW Premier and increasing health risk, we have had to take the unfortunate decision to postpone this ceremony.
