Should you win an MCV Award?

The MCV Awards return to The Brewery on Thursday April 23rd – and you now have one month to help us decide who makes the shortlist.

By lobbying the MCV team, you can nominate yourself or another oustanding individual or company which has gone the extra mile in the last year.

To give us your suggestions on who should win on the night, email

How It Works:

You need to provide us with a brief document outlining why you feel your company or another deserves to be considered as a finalist. We don’t need powerpoint presentations or marketing materials at this point. You have until Monday February 16th to do this.

Email to lobby.

The MCV team then decides on five finalists per category. These will be announced on Friday February 27th via MCV and MCV Online.

A group of 100 judges from across the industry will then vote on the winners of each category.

This year the categories have been tweaked slightly, with the retail section being almost entirely overhauled. It means that every retailer, regardless of size or product specialism, can now compete for all five prizes. There is also a greater focus on rewarding shop floor staff.

The Categories:

High Street Retailer
Online Retailer
Star Store
Store Manager of the Year
Retail Innovation

Sales Team
UK Development Team
Distribution Team
Sales Triumph
Games Publisher

New Games Brand
PR Team
Game Campaign

The MCV Awards 2009 takes place on Thursday April 23rd at The Brewery, Chiswell Street, London.
