THE AWARDS CEREMONY

STEP 1

The MCV/DEVELOP Women In Games Awards are open to those working in the UK games industry or related to the UK games industry,
for example those working on games published in the UK. With the shift in the date of this year’s event, we will be honouring incredible achievements between May 1st 2019 and June 30th 2020.

Submitting an entry is quick, easy and free of charge: just check out our array of categories, find your opportunity to shine
and then complete a simple application form using our online entry portal.

In the spirit of collaboration, nominations are highly encouraged – so make sure you put the spotlight on the amazing women you work alongside too!

STEP 2

Once entries and nominations close on Friday 4 September, the MCV/DEVELOP team will be tasked with reviewing each and every entry to ensure that the relevant criteria is met and curate a shortlist in each category. These shortlists will be announced on Friday 9 October.

These shortlists will then be put to our incredible judging panel, made up of specially selected industry experts and veterans
– we’ll be sharing more on this year’s line up very soon!

Our judges will go through each entrant on the shortlist to determine who will be picking up a coveted award at this year’s ceremony.

STEP 3

Usually, the MCV/DEVELOP Women In Games Awards event would take place in June but this year we’ve moved it back to November 25th.

We have a fantastic venue booked for the event and are hopeful that we’ll be able to go ahead with our usual celebrations, however we as can’t predict the status of the pandemic in advance, we have plans in place to take the event to a digital platform should needs must.

We will keep you all updated as the situation develops and, either way, we look forward to welcoming you to join us in celebrating the incredible achievements of women in the UK games industry – whether that be in person or online!
