As we count down to the awards event on Wednesday October 14th, MCV profiles the finalists for this year's Games Media Awards.
Here we look at the streamer category.
Each and every weekday AppSpy streams some of the best games on mobile and handheld, often well in advance of their release. With over five million views, the AppSpy Twitch stream is the place to be for all your pocket gaming needs.
On Tuesday streams I drive trucks around Europe very badly. On other days I'm a news reporter on the world's greatest dinosaur soap opera: Twitch RP on ARK: Survival Evolved. I tame dinos and go on dates using conversation topics crowdsourced from chat. It is both amazing and terrible.
My names Chris. Official_DoN_Gaming used to be a pro sponsored battlefield team that I owned and ran, I used to stream each competitive match and really enjoyed the interaction, one day I just decided to put my life on hold and take up full time streaming..... 12 months down the line here I am with over 500 active subscribers and now over 51K followers, I love twitch and the crazy community I have built.
I try to give back as much as I can and I also own Elite gaming Network, a stream team on twitch with now over 60 other streamers :)

Most weeks, they stream themselves playing computer games. Because that's just what the internet was missing. Two more white guys, playing computer games on Twitch. Finally.
