South Africa’s inaugural awards ceremony focussing on television soap opera will now take place in the first quarter of 2014.
Said Royalty Soapie Awards project director Sindile Xulu, “to give maximum value to all our partners and sponsors we felt it was important that as a new project, the event must have the desired impact.
“The first quarter of the year is an ideal time and fairly uncluttered from an entertainment point of view and it is a fantastic time to visit Durban as it falls outside of the peak holiday season.”
The second announcement of finalists in the acting categories will be made on 23 October and voting lines for the Most Popular Soapie opens on 2 November.
A date for the opening of ticket sales for the event will be announced in the near future.
