Sponsored exclusively by BMJ, the Golden Leaf Awards 2020 have been postponed until 2021. The award ceremony was scheduled to take place at the 2020 Global Tobacco & Nicotine Forum (GTNF) in September. Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, GTNF 2020 has pivoted to a virtual event from Sept. 21–24 that spans five continents, four days and three time zones.
The Golden Leaf Awards will take place as they traditionally do with an in-person ceremony at GTNF 2021 in Seoul, South Korea. Any 2020 nominations received will be considered for the awards in 2021. We anticipate there will be some exceptional contributions emerging in these unprecedented times, and we hope our program can bring some of them to light at next year’s GTNF.
