Games Media Awards return with three new categories

The GMAs return on October 14th, with new prizes for video leaders and mainstream writers.

2015 marks the ninth annual outing of the always-talked-about event which champions the best in games editorial.

After a successful revamp last year – which saw almost every category improved, a new voting system and venue – the October event will see the addition of prizes for YouTubers, Streamers plus a category for Mainstream Voice.

Returning are all the core awards, which focus on writers, not the brands they work for or pay them – plus our audience voted prizes. These include the Players’ Choice (in association with Playfire) voted for by consumers, and the on-the-night vote of Journalists’ Journalist.

This year’s categories in full areNews Writer, Feature Writer, Games Critic, Video Team, Mainstream Voice (New), YouTuber (New), Streamer (New), Radio or Podcast Team, Rising Star, Editorial Team of the Year – Online, Editorial Team of the Year – Print, Journalists’ Journalist and Players’ Choice (in association with Playfire).

Entries are now open. We’re looking for input direct from entrants and would-be finalists; industry suggestions and reader lobbying will all be read, but won’t be the overall deciding factor. Submissions will be accepted to until August 14th.

The full guide for how to enter can be found here.

The finalists will be announced mid-September.
