Women in Games Awards – Join us for an amazing livestream awards on November 25th at 4pm

We’re very excited to say that we’re just two weeks away from the Women in Games Awards 2020. And we really hope you can all join us on the day to celebrate the contribution of women to the UK’s games industry.

This year’s event will be livestreamed. We’re working with game event production experts ADVNCR on the awards this year, and you can watch the event with us at www.womeningamesawards.com.

We couldn’t be happier with our two incredible hosts for the event: Charleyy Hodson (Xbox) and Elle Osili-Wood (BBC), both of whom who are so fantastic that they also made the shortlists for this year (although of course we didn’t tell our judges they were hosting!). We’ll also have some very special guests joining us remotely.

Our shortlisted nominees, opposite, will also be joining us live. A big thanks to all of our judges for putting in the time and effort to choose our winners.

Finally, we’d like to thank our sponsors for this year’s event, without whom it would not be possible: Rare, Facebook Gaming, Unity, EA, Amiqus, Creative Assembly, Hangar 13, OPM Jobs and Splash Damage.

And here’s the shortlists again for this year’s event, looking forward to seeing you all on the day!
