Join us for the Women in Games Awards 2020 TODAY at 4pm!

It’s finally here, after a six-month delay and a move from the usual big London mixer to a livestream event – the Women in Games Awards 2020!

Some things may have changed but what hasn’t is the brilliance of our 54 shortlisted nominees across nine categories, all of whom have shown brilliance over the last year in order to get this far out of the many hundreds and hundreds of nominations. And most of whom will be joining us live on the stream to see who has won.

We really hope that you can all join us today at 4pm at to celebrate the achievements of our nominees, and of all the women across our industry, in what has been an incredibly difficult year.

We’ll also have some special guests speaking and our Outstanding Contribution Award winner will also be revealed. All alongside our incredible hosts Charleyy Hodson and Elle Osili-Wood.

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.
