Nobody wants complicated entry forms, right? So, we’ve made the Games Media Brit List nominations process as simple as possible.

These awards are for anyone working in the UK games media. You don’t have to be British, but you do need to have worked for a UK games media outlet within the past 12 months.

Below is a list of the categories with a brief explanation of who is eligible to enter.
