Without the support, friendship, and dedication of the wonderful friends and people from all over the world who understood the importance and worth of CSWC for the world's cigar community, CSWC would never have achieved this level of success. Because CSWC is a global organization focused on people, it aims to recognize those who deserve it most. CSWC Diamond Leaf Awards are exactly that - an expression of heartfelt gratitude for outstanding contributions and dedication made by special people to the CSWC concept.

Every year, the CSWC organization team faces thrilled but also difficult decision moments during the selection of the Diamond Leaf award winners, because all CSWC friends and organisers, judges do an amazing job. However, as with any award process, the CSWC organization team must decide who will receive the Diamond Leaf awards.

This year, after bringing CSWC experience to a whole new level in their country in just two years, providing a great competition experience with an amazing national final, CSWC Team Italy deserved to win the award for the best qualifier of the season 2022. Gino, Francesco, Alberto, Stjepan, and Aurelio did an outstanding job, and the CSWC organization board is grateful for this outstanding efforts and results.

The Diamond Leaf award went to Pierre Gustavsson of Sweden for being the best CSWC ambassador in 2022. This incredible individual did so much to promote CSWC all over the world, and with his CSWC Judge and CSWC qualifier organiser roles for many years, he was a part of putting the CSWC fundation in place. His emotional speech at the CSWC Diamond Leaf awards moved the entire audience, who cheered and applauded loudly to confirm Gustavsson's well-deserved recognition.
