Women in Games launch the first Global Games Awards with 3 new Awards, Call for Nominations

Women in Games is calling for nominations for 8 Awards in a much expanded Global Games Awards. Like the Women in Games Global Conference, this year’s awards will be completely virtual and part of the biggest and most engaging event ever! Whilst the core conference programme will take place on the 9th and 10th September, the Awards will be a standalone event on Saturday 12th September at 6.00pm BST, 1.00pm EST, 10.00am PST
Women in Games are excited to be producing a conference and awards that will be diverse, relevant, engaging and truly global. The event is being hosted through the virtual event platform Hopin.
New Awards for 2020 include Best Game developed by a woman or female team and Global Games Gender Diversity Initiative of the Year. Existing awards that now move focus from European to Global include the Global Games Advocacy Awards – recognising games organisations advocating for change, Outstanding Individual Ambassador Awards, Corporate Ambassador Behind the Scenes Awards, Women in Games Student Portfolio Awards, and our longest standing Global Women in Games Hall of Fame Awards. There will also be an award for winners of our planned Game Jam.

More details, including how to nominate are at our dedicated Global Games Awards site.

Women in Games seeks entries from North America and Asia Pacific just as much as from Europe. Our awards seek to recognise outstanding individuals, companies from all over the gaming world.

Marie-Claire Isamaan, CEO of Women in Games commented, “We are delighted to take our Awards to a global audience. They form an integral part of our conference programme, showcasing and connecting women around the world. We wish to highlight and recognise the companies and talent that are doing so much through the Covid-19 crisis. We recognise the support of Innovate UK, the UK’s innovation agency to help make this event possible. Please enter our Awards and support the global Women in Games community”
