You have until5pm today (Friday, August 14th) to put forward your nominations for this year’s Games Media Awards.
The event returns on October 14th and marks the ninth annual outing of the always-talked-about event which champions the best in games editorial.
After a successful revamp last year – which saw almost every category improved, a new voting system and venue – the October event will see the addition of prizes for YouTubers, Streamers plus a category for Mainstream Voice.

This year’s categories in full are:
- News Writer
- Feature Writer
- Games Critic
- Video Team
- Mainstream Voice (New)
- YouTuber (New)
- Streamer (New)
- Radio or Podcast Team
- Rising Star
- Editorial Team of the Year – Online
- Editorial Team of the Year – Print
- Journalists’ Journalist
- Players’ Choice (in association with Playfire)
We’re looking for input direct from entrants and would-be finalists; industry suggestions and reader lobbying will all be read, but won’t be the overall deciding factor.
We repeat: submissions will be accepted firstname.lastname@example.org 5pm, 17:00,today, August 14th.
The finalists will be announced in mid-September.
