As the only awards in the cigar industry that are decided on by public vote, the Cigar Trophy Awards honor the great knowledge, enthusiasm and commitment and the hard work of those within the cigar industry.
Cigar Trophy winners are determined through a two-step process. During the nomination round, readers submit their top candidates for each category. During the voting round, winners are chosen from these finalists.
Through June 15, 2017, you can nominate your favorite cigars (from various countries of origin), cigar accessories and cigar lounges. After the deadline, those who have received the most nominations will move on as finalists. During the voting round from June 23-30, winners will be chosen from the category finalists.
Nominate your candidates for the Cigar Trophy 2017 awards by submitting the form at the bottom of this page.
Please note: Some countries of origin routinely do not receive enough nominations to move on to the voting round. For that reason, please make an effort to nominate cigars from all countries of origin, including lesser-known regions.
All nominations must adhere to the following guidelines: Only one nomination may be made per person and category. Nominations must reflect the nominator’s personal opinions and may not be made on behalf of a business or employer. Companies that offer benefits or gifts in exchange for the nomination of their products will be disqualified. Nominated products must be available on the market. Any nominations that do not follow these guidelines will be considered null and void.
