The Winners Of The Tatler Awards 2020
Every year at our grand anniversary ball, we present awards in various categories to those who deserved it most in the year. This year, with the pandemic, things were bound to be a little different and the Tatler Ball was simmered down to its gist: The Tatler Awards ceremony. Altering traditions slightly, on the evening of November 25, we presented just five awards, many of which were brand new titles: the Eco-Hero award, the Entrepreneur of the Year, the CSR Award, the Style Award and the Person of the Year. Honours were presented to recipients by special guests. Here are the winners and the presenters of the 2020 Tatler Awards:
The director of Precious Plastic Bangkok, Dominic Puwasawat Chakrabongse received our inaugural Eco-Hero award. Having spent five years in the environmental sector fighting illegal fishing and human right abuses, his intention to save the world is as clear as it gets.
