This is your chance to be recognised among the best creators and innovators in games development from the UK and Europe, as well as the global firms that are instrumental to producing the games that are made in these regions.

The awards ceremony will be held at the Brighton Hilton Metropole on Wednesday, July 13th during Develop: Brighton 2016. To book your ticket now, contact Georgia via gblake@nbmedia.com.

There are 20 awards this year, organised into four simple categories: Creativity, Tech & Services, Studio and Special Awards. Find out how to nominate here.

As always, our prestigious Development Legend will be given to an esteemed icon that has pioneered some of the industry's biggest innovations. The winner will be selected by the Develop Team and announced ahead of the event.
