Dr Mumbo

Walkleys and Kennedys go head to head

Dr Mumbo was planning his diary for the week and couldn’t help but notice that Wednesday was looking a bit crowded…

It would appear the folks from The Kennedy Awards have put their nominations announcement, which is at the Australian Turf Club’s Theatre of the Horse at Randwick, on the same night at The Walkley Foundation’s Freelancer of the Year event which is on at the CBD Hotel back in the city.

Normally these organisations try to avoid clashing given there might be a few journos who wanted to attend both.

Yes we have become aware of the clash for a few people – but busy focused on our own event,” a Kennedys award organiser told Dr Mumbo.

A spokeswoman for the Walkleys declined to comment. 

Dr Mumbo will be watching intently to see who pulls the bigger audience.
