PTC Punjabi Film Awards 2020Edit

The World's first online awards show this year: PTC Punjabi Film Awards 2020. 2020 has not been a great year for the entertainment industry. COVID-19 forced lockdown across the globe and most events have been postponed indefinitely, if not cancelled. PTC Punjabi Film Awards 2020 therefore will go online. PTC Network is using technology to its best to make sure this event does not lack the glitz and glamour that it promises.


As of 2014, there are 26 awards. There was a separate category of film-critics awards, decided by noted film-critics rather than popular votes. This dual format has also generated some controversy amongst viewers and recipients. Awards were given in the following categories.
