If you missed it before, we’ve decided not to run a physical awards event this year (which probably isn’t a huge surprise to anyone). I’ll be providing more info on the new arrangement tomorrow, and also in Friday’s GDH newsletter which you can sign up to using the banner at the bottom of the page.

Huge thanks also to our partners at Creative Assembly, EPOS & No Brakes Games, plus founding partners Aardvark Swift, Analog & Games Jobs Direct. We massively appreciate their support in what has been one of the weirdest and most awkward years to try and run an awards event!
