ABOUT THE AWARDS

www.mcvawards.com

Now in their 16th successful year, the MCV Awards are the UK’s only computer and video games awards that recognise games publishing, retail, distribution, marketing, PR, events and media – all parts of this industry we love.

 

This year, in consultation with the industry, we’ve redesigned the categories, criteria, entry system and judging process to enable us to be more transparent and open about the way things are done, so the industry can trust that the MCV Awards really are the mark of business excellence in video games. That starts with clearer criteria for your entry and easy to use Word documents so you can get internal sign off for your entries.

 

The entry process for the awards is your opportunity to put forward your team’s best work for the year and highlight your company to the industry! This is your chance to shout about your organisation, and get recognition and reward from your peers.
