We report the spectroscopic classification of three ZTF transients as supernovae. SN 2020gam is an old type II SN, SN 2020nqw is a type Ia around the peak and SN 2020lid is a Ib SN.
We report spectral classifications of three supernovae from the Zwicky Transient Facility (Bellm et al. 2018, PASP 131, 995).
Observations were carried out in the night of 2020-07-07 using the ALFOSC spectrograph mounted on the NOT 2.56m telescope at Roque de los Muchachos Observatory, La Palma.
For all observations we used Grism 4 and the 1.0 arcsecond slit.
Conditions were full moon, dusty atmosphere (calima), but cloudless.
All spectra were reduced using the pypeit pipeline using SP2209+178 as standard star.
Afterwards the spectra were crossmatched using SNID (Blondin & Tonry 2007 2007ApJ...666.1024B).
SN 2020gam (ZTF20aauoktk) best matches a type II supernova. It is several moths past explosion based on the ZTF light curve. 
SN 2020nqw (ZTF20abixkhh) is a type Ia supernova close to maximum light.
SN 2020lid (ZTF20abjtavx, first reported as ATLAS20off) is a type Ib SN. The spectrum best matches with SN 1993J at several weeks past maximum. 
We thank Teet Kuutma and the NOT staff for obtaining these service observations.
