Convenors of the 6th Annual Titanium Awards have announced that the deadline has been extended to 31 July 2020 and instead of the original five categories, there will only be two this year – both focusing on efforts made in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic “to honour individuals, academics and organisations who have played a critical role in response to this crisis”.

Finalists will be notified in September.
Eligible institutions and individuals can submit entries in the following two categories:
