Women in Games Awards: Lobbying ends soon

You have just over a week to submit your nominations for this year’s Women in Games awards.

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to highlight the achievements of yourself, your colleagues or your peers.

The MCV Women In Games event– in association with the Women in Games (WIGJ) body –takes place at the Hamyard Hotel, London on Thursday May 19th.

2016 sees us searching for the Top 30 Women in Games, whilst also introducing six special categories:

Rising Star – This category recognises a leading up-and-coming talent from any sector of the business. The judges expect most nominees to be under 30, but consideration will also be given to women who are new (less than three years) to the industry.

Businesswoman of the Year – An executive who has had a stellar 12 months in terms of driving a company forward and generating significant revenues.

Creative Impact – Recognising talent in games development and design.

Unsung Hero – Honouring the vital support roles in the industry, including QA, community managers, studio managers, PR and HR.

Campaigner – A special award for someone working for or with a games-related charity, or working within a community to use games as a force for change, inclusion, education or improvement.

Outstanding Contribution of the Year – The award will reflect upon the life of someone who has had a lengthy and successful career at the top of the industry, making positive contributions to the commercial success and public profile of the games industry.

The lobbying period runs until February 17th. Simply email mcvwomen@nbmedia.comwith a brief description of why you, a colleague or peer should be considered. Find out more here.

The MCV and Women in Games teams will then work with a specially selected panel of industry professionals to identify the Top 30 Women from the list of nominations, in addition to voting for the six special awards.

Tickets for the event are priced at just 49 each. Click here to buy yours now.
