The eSports Industry Awards are on their way and have partnered up with GamesAid!


GamesAid are proud to be the charity partners of the first eSports Industry Awards!

On Monday, November 21st, the eSports Industry Awards will be arriving at The Brewery in London.

There are 18 categories covering everything from ‘Streamer of the Year’ to ‘Rookie of the Year’, ‘Best Hardware Provider’ to ‘Best Streaming Platform’, and many more.

You can have a say in three categories and vote for who you believe deserves to win the ‘eSports Journalist of the Year’, ‘eSports Photographer of the Year’ and ‘New eSports Game of the Year’ awards. Not only can your vote determine who wins in these three categories, but by having your say, you’ll be in with a chance to win 2 tickets to attend the awards next Monday. Hurry though, you’ve only got until Friday to do so!
