As the situation with the COVID-19 outbreak continues to evolve we have postponed the awards celebration planned for June 19 but have not cancelled the important project to celebrate South Australia’s leaders.

Leadership and entrepreneurial thinking is more important than ever in these uncertain times. That’s why Solstice Media will continue to find and celebrate all that is great in South Australia, including our outstanding people under the age of 40.

We can guarantee that the event, in its original form, will go ahead at a later date and we look forward to celebrating South Australia’s finest young leaders.

We will then commence the judging (thankfully technology lets us do this remotely) and celebrate the winners at the most appropriate time in the future – when it’s safe and we are all ready for another tremendous party.
