Sawiris Foundation for Social Development has announced that it will be delaying the upcoming ceremony for its cultural awards until April instead of the original date scheduled for the ceremony on January 8th.
 
The foundation said that the delay comes in response to the Egyptian government's decision to ban large gatherings and public activities and to ensure the safety of the attendees.
 
However the foundation unveiled the full lists of the nominees for its established writers in the categories of novel, short story, playwright and literary criticism awards, which was usually done at the ceremony itself.
