The Conch Awards has been moved to September.
Organisers said the ceremony, which celebrates outstanding acheievement in audio for film, television and commercials, had been delayed due to the large number of entries.
Conch Awards 2012 event director Charlotte Wheeler said: “We have been overwhelmed by the fantastic response to our call for entries.
“Celebrating the quality of work in the UK in the essence behind the awards and we want to ensure that everyone has enough time to put their best entries together.
The award ceremony will now be held on Wednesday 19 September at the Mayfair Hotel in London.
Said Wheeler: “It has taken longer than expected to prepare the shortlist, this in turn left little time for the shortlisted nominees to gather the required material for final judging.
“We apologise for any inconvenience in changing the date of the ceremony, but assure everyone that it will be worth the wait.”
