Awards event for everyone involved in the UK games media community will take place

Thursday, May 16th 2019 * Jägermeister bar returns!

Nominations now open!

The Games Media Brit List will once again celebrate the very best in games writing and broadcasting on Thursday, May 16th 2019 at London’s Rix Mix.

Returning after a rip-roaring inaugural 2018 event, the Games Media Brit List awards are open to anyone involved in the games and esports media – specialist consumer journalists, B2B reporters, vloggers, media brands, national media reviewers and more.

The awards provide a showcase of UK games media talent and will highlight achievements from the previous 12 months – whether for excellent reporting, influencer reach, or creative ingenuity.

Nominations are open to anyone working in the UK games media. Entrants don’t have to be British, but they do need to have worked for a UK games media outlet within the past 12 months.

As well as the awards themselves, the Games Media Brit List will once again bring together the games media community and the wider industry for an evening of entertainment and networking in the buildup to E3, the global industry’s leading trade event in LA.

And for finalists, the Games Media Brit List will once again be completely free to attend.

The Games Media Brit List 2019 categories are:-

Best Critic

Pretty self-explanatory. Have you reviewed anything in print, online or as part of a podcast/video? This category is for you.

Best Reporter

For all you news hounds across any medium.

Best Features Writer

Is longform your thing? Print, digital, mainstream or specialist features writers, step this way.

Best Video Presenter

Got a face for video? This category covers both solo YouTubers and brand-produced content.

Best Podcast & Radio

We know that video hasn’t killed the radio/podcast star. This category celebrates this still-thriving sector of the media.

Print Editorial Team

Does what it says on the tin. Recognising magazine and newspaper teams – specialist and mainstream.

Online Editorial Coverage - Specialist

Ditto. If you and your specialist games team cover games online, enter here.

Online Editorial Coverage - Mainstream

Same, but for the national and mainstream media.

Video Production Team

Again, not much to explain. Open to any editorially-led video production teams who cover games.

Emerging Talent

This category celebrates those just starting out on their journey as a games writer or broadcaster. Open to anyone who’s been writing about games for under two years.

Editor of the Year

This category is open to magazine, online or section editors who have inspired and led their teams to success over the past year.

Unsung Hero

Do you know someone who has gone out of their way to mentor and foster upcoming talent? Or have gone beyond the call to help with worthwhile initiatives. This one’s for them.

Most Influential 

This will recognise an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to the UK games media during his/her career. The winner of this award will be chosen by the Games Media Brit List team, who will take soundings from leading industry individuals.

Winners will be chosen by a panel of independent peer judges.
