We are excited to finally reveal the winners of our Women in Games Awards 2019, which took place earlier today at Facebook London!
The awards, returning for the fifth year in a row, were inundated with hundreds and hundreds of fantastic entries and we were really pleased to be able to once again celebrate the huge contribution of women to the UK games industry.
