Gavin Jones created the Deadly Awards 20 years ago. It has brought together community members and celebrities from all over Australia and the World to celebrate in our Aboriginal and Islander culture and talent. It's a time of year when we as Indigenous people come together to say 'Hey, look at us! We're just as Deadly as you mob!' To showcase our art, singing, sport, community and our people. Please reinstate the funding for the 2014 Deadly Awards, even if it's the final one... So we can say a big thank you to Gavin for all the amazing years and a goodbye to an event that we all hold dear to our hearts.
