The House, Deal and Issuer categories eligible for submission are the same as 2019 with one new addition: a special Covid-19 award for the deal that we feel best navigated what has been an exceptionally difficult year.

The winners will then be announced online on November 30th, with full write-ups published in FinanceAsia's winter edition at the beginning of January 2021.
