We’re incredibly excited to (finally) be launching the Women in Games Awards 2020. Despite the pandemic we’re still determined to celebrate the huge contribution (be it from home or the office) of women in the games industry. 

Usually the event takes place in June, but this year we’ve had to move it back to the 25th of November. We have a fantastic venue booked for the event, and we’re hopeful that we’ll be able to use it at a reasonable capacity, however as we can’t predict the status of the pandemic in advance, we have also organised a digital event should needs must. 

Due to the shift in date of this year’s awards, we will be recognising achievements from May 1st 2019 up to the award launch on 30th of July 2020, so that’s 15 months of brilliance to pack into those nominations.

The MCV Women in Games awards are open to those working in the UK games industry or for work related to the UK industry – such as those working on games published in the UK. Please get in touch with our team if you have any queries about the suitability of your nominee and the appropriate category for them.


Entries open – 30th July

Shortlist announced  – 9th October

We’d like to thank our sponsors for this year’s event, without which it would not be possible: Rare, Facebook Gaming, Unity, EA, Amiqus, Creative Assembly, Hangar 13, OPM Jobs and Splash Damage.
