MANILA — From rockers IV of Spades to KZ Tandingan and Shanti Dope’s amazing collaboration, here are all the winners from this year’s Awit Awards 2020. 

The annual Awit Awards for the first time was held virtually, due to the pandemic. The nominees were judged by various ratings, such as artistic and technical excellence in the creativity categories, and vocal quality and musicality in the performance ones, to name a few. 

The 2020 edition doubled as a way to raise funds for those artists and musicians struggling to make ends meet because of COVID-19.
