Golden Leaf Awards Winners 2020

Golden Leaf Awards – 2020 Winners Announced! 

The Golden Leaf Awards were conducted again in 2020. It was a difficult year to hold the Golden Leaf 
Awards with the COVID-19 restrictions affecting awards timing and judging but we are pleased we 
persevered and managed it and we are pleased so many people supported the awards with entries. 

We will hold the awards in 2021 again and we hope that it will be an even bigger competition 
although we think in the current climate that receiving over 300 entries for 2020 was amazing! It was 
also pleasing to see the international entries and for this we are really proud. We are also so happy 
to see some people received multiple awards.
