We have long been debating internally how much visibility to give to
runners-up. The official prizes are for place 1-15. In the past, we have
decided to include 16-25 as well for the social media and sometimes jury
report, because it broadens the set of countries that get a share of the
joy. We typically reserved the 'official' places for the official winners
(1-15). But, this is arguably just a judgement call, and I could totally
imagine this falling in another direction in the future.

Hi Ciell + Mohammad -
Thank you for sharing these links.
I'm wondering why the honorable mentions were only announced on social
media (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram) and not also announced on the WLM blog
and/or Commons. It's really great to get the word out to a wider audience
but, in my opinion, we should also make sure that we keep fuller records of
WM activities within the wikiverse itself.
As social media platforms are arguably transient (and certainly not as
open as Commons) it would be good to have the honorable mentions captured
as part of the international contest results in a way that's easy to access
in WLM natural environment, so to speak. I'd gladly contribute to this (on
Commons) if others agree or the WLM international team don't have the
capacity to handle this without input from the community.
For the record: I've also posted this message on the WLM 2020 winners talk
page on Commons.
Thanks again and best wishes,
