The annual European Audiologist of the Year awards event was due to be held later this year. Officials have announced the cancellation of this year’s competition in recognition of the challenges audiologists across the European continent are experiencing as a result of coronavirus COVID-19.
The decision to cancel the annual award has been made by the event’s organisers. Applications already received will be included in next year’s judging process.
“We would like to thank our competition partners and judges for their ongoing support and reassure audiologists and patients who have submitted entries for this year’s competition, that these will be included in the 2021 judging process”, the organisers state.
The competition is organised by private companies within the hearing industry, the European Hearing Instrument Manufacturers Association (EHIMA) and the European Federation of Hard of Hearing People (EFHOH).
