The Cigar Trophy Awards 2021 have begun. Effective immediately until June 14, you can nominate your favorite products. Please visit www.cigartrophy.com or click this link to be part of this unique initiative.
The Cigar Trophy Awards were created as a gesture of appreciation – as a thank you for the hard work that goes into every single premium cigar, into every cherished accessory and into every feel-good oasis where we can enjoy a cigar in a pleasant atmosphere.
After the awards were initiated in 1998, the Cigar Trophies soon proved to be the most coveted awards in the cigar world. After all, it is the only prize awarded by the public in this sector.
The categories for the Consumer Awards are:
Best Brand | Best Cigar | Best Value | Best Accessory | Best Lounge
The winners are selected in two phases:
Nominations: Consumers submit their favorites in each category – June 1 – 14 2021
Voting: Consumers choose the winner from the top-level shortlist – June 27 – July 11 2021
Between June 1–14 2021, passionados are welcome to nominate their favorite cigars (from various countries of origin), cigar accessories and cigar lounges. The top 5 nominees will move on to the final voting (June 27 to July 11 2021).
During the final voting round from June 27 to July 11 2021, consumers choose the winners from the short lists of the top 5 nominees in each category.
Each consumer has 1 vote both in the nomination and voting phase. Multiple nominations or votes (per IP address) will be eliminated. Manufacturers and operators of lounges can encourage their fan base to nominate or vote for their offers. However, no bonuses may be offered in this context.
A virtual Award Ceremony will be held in September 2021. The date and time will be announced on this website. The public ceremony will be streamed live on https://www.facebook.com/CigarJournal.
A separate set of awards (the Jury Awards) is determined by the Cigar Journal editorial staff. The winners in these categories will also be awarded in the ceremony: Outstanding Art | Charity & Community | Ambassador | Lifetime Achievement
