Enter This Way...

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

The Games Media Brit List is a showcase of the talent in the UK games media, recognising the individuals engaged in reporting, reviewing or commentating on video games and esports – including specialist journalists (B2C and B2B), national press, podcasters, vloggers, reviewers, freelancers, and everything in between.

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 [See the 2018 Winners here].

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

Choose which one/s you want to enter (either yourself or on behalf of somebody else) and then simply email entries@gamesmediabritlist.com, providing the following information:-

  • The category or categories you wish to enter

  • 100-200 words on why you/your team/the person you want to nominate should be considered for this award

  • Up to five links to work, if relevant

  • Up to three pieces of supporting material

That’s it.

The closing date for nominations is Thursday, February 28th 2019.

Winners will be picked by a named panel of independent judges.
