GAMES MEDIA BRIT LIST TO CELEBRATE THE VERY BEST IN GAMES WRITING & BROADCASTING

New awards event launches for everyone involved in the UK games media community

p>For immediate release: 04 December 2017

Presentation ceremony set for Thursday May 17th 2018 at Rich Mix, Shoreditch

A new awards event has been launched to celebrate the very best in games writing and broadcasting.

The Games Media Brit List (https://www.gamesmediabritlist.com ) is open to anyone involved in the video games and esports media – specialist consumer journalists, B2B reporters, vloggers, streamers, media brands, national media reviewers and more.

The inaugural presentation ceremony will take place on Thursday, May 17th 2018 at Rich Mix in Shoreditch, where event partner Jägermeister will be providing games-themed cocktails.

The Games Media Brit List will 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.

It is 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 bring together the games media community and the wider industry for an evening of entertainment and networking in the build up to E3, the global industry’s leading trade event in LA.

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

The 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 Streamer

Are you a streamer? Are you good? This one’s for you.

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 Team

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

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.

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