Owing to the COVID-19 crisis the FEP was unable to host the planned awards ceremony in Rome in March 2020. Therefore they put together a special broadcast to announce the winners.
After the global corona pandemic put a dent in the plans of announcing FEP’s annual competition winner in Rome on March 22nd, the FEP quickly put together a new plan and organized a special online video broadcast to announce the winners.
The original broadcast was premiered on Facebook on Saturday April 4th 2020.
