The firm joins a strong line-up of organisations sponsoring the event, which celebrates and recognises those working in the games media.

The GMAs are an excellent way to recognise industry talent and we're delighted to be a sponsor,” DC Thomson head of advertising for consumer entertainment Andy Williams said.

This is our first GMAs and seemed the perfect way to celebrate the launch of our new, exciting and unique gaming magazine, 110% Gaming.”

The award categories have been overhauled, as has the judging and entry process. Over 250 people are expected to attend, with over 150 of them from national press, specialist outlets and further afield.
