"Due to Justpalm being unable to stream the awards show on the original date (Wednesday, 23 September), we at New Gen have taken the decision to reschedule," says New Gen's founder and owner Stephen Paxton.

"We will now broadcast the New Generation virtual awards ceremony on Friday, 25 September at 19:00," adds Paxton. "I ask that you please share this letter and the new scheduled awards date and time with your colleagues, partners, directors and clients."

"On behalf of the New Generation Awards, I am personally devastated that we could not host the awards on Wednesday, but I can assure all that we will bring you an awesome virtual awards ceremony," concludes Paxton. "I only hope that you and your clients can give us a second chance and tune in, to see 2020's winners announced." 

Individuals are encouraged to watch the ceremony on the awards' social media pages, on Justpalm.tv and their associated social media platforms media update and MarkLives' social media pages.
