White Reindeer Award 2020 cancelled

Due to the unusual circumstances regarding the coronavirus the White Reindeer Award for 2020 has been cancelled and nominees for the price will be kept for the White Reindeer Award 2021.

As a big part of the price for the winner is to be the center of attention during the award gala dinner we have decided to cancel the price this year says the founder of the White Reindeer Award, Fredrik Malmberg.
The White Reindeer Award was supposed to be given to the winner during Arctic Game Week 2020 May 20-23rd which also was cancelled due to Covid-19.
