Xataka Orange Awards 2021: follow our gala today live with Joaquín Reyes, raffles and many surprises

The day has come! Today, November 18 from 8:00 p.m., we will celebrate the gala of the Xataka Orange Awards 2021. How could it be otherwise, you can follow it live in streaming from our website and from ElStream, nuestro canal de Twitch. This year we return with a face-to-face gala at the Capitol Cinemas which, as in previous editions, will be full of surprises and gifts. All this directed by our master of ceremonies, Joaquín Reyes.

We will award prizes in 23 categories, whose finalists we have already published. Your votes have not only chosen those finalists, but have also added a weight of one third to those of the jury to choose the winners. As is traditional, we will also award the Community Award to the device that has received the most votes. We will also have during the event the presence of the winner of the first Xataka Leyenda award: Pedro Duque.

Also, remember that until the start of the gala you can participate in our “cheer” and win a batch of Xiaomi products consisting of a Xiaomi Pad 5 with Smart Pen, a Xiaomi Mi Smart Clock and a Xiaomi Smart Band 6.

The awards

As every year, the editors of Engadget have made a previous selection from among all the devices presented in each category. This done, we ask you, our xatakeros, that you did not help to choose the finalists for each category through a vote.

To choose the winners, a jury of specialized journalists from Xataka and other media has voted for their favorites from among all the finalist products chosen by you. Those votes were joined by readers’ votes with a weight of one third and the winners have emerged from that result. The winners in each category will be announced at today’s Xataka Orange Awards gala.

These are all the categories we have this year. You have the finalists in each category here.

Regarding the requirements to participate, each device, technology or candidate must have gone on sale throughout 2021 or do so with a confirmed date before the end of the year. In addition, those products that were released after the 2020 Xataka Awards and that did not compete have also been taken into account. Of course, those who have been left out of this edition will participate in the 2022 one. As we cannot celebrate the awards on December 31, we believe that this is the best solution.

Thank you all very much and we are waiting for you at the Xataka Orange Awards 2021!
