the gala continues today live with David Broncano, raffles and many surprises

Finally the day has come! Today, November 19 from 8:00 p.m., we will celebrate the Xataka 2020 Awards, which you can follow live in streaming from here on our website and from our YouTube channel. This time it will be a virtual gala but, like other years, it will be full of surprises and gifts. All this with a great master of ceremonies: David Broncano, who repeats this year as presenter.

We will award prizes in 24 categories, of which we have already published the finalists. Your votes have not only chosen those finalists, but they have also been counted (weighing one third) together with those of the jury to choose the winners. In addition, we will award the Community Award to the device that has received the most votes from you. And attention, that even if it is virtual we will have more giveaways than ever.

The awards

As every year, the editors of Xataka have made a preselection of the most outstanding devices in each category and we ask you, our xatakeros, that you help us choose the finalists for each category with your votes.

For choose the winners, a jury of specialized journalists from Xataka and other media (which we present below) has voted for their favorites from among all the finalist products chosen by the public. In addition, the vote of the readers also adds up here (with weight one third) to choose the winners. The winners in each category will be announced at today’s Xataka Awards gala.

These are categories that we have this year (and here you can see the finalists):

Regarding the requirements to participate, each device, technology or candidate must have gone on sale in Spain during 2020 or do so with a confirmed date before the end of the year. Additionally, the products that went on the market after the 2019 Awards and did not compete, have also been counted for this edition (and those that have been left out this year will compete in 2021). As we cannot celebrate the awards on December 31, we believe this is the best solution.
