The inaugural Australian Games Awards nominees have been announced and we’re stoked to say we’ve been included in the gongs for “Gaming Publication of the Year” and “Breakout Creator of the Year.”

This year the categories are nominated by the public, so a huge thank you to each and every one of you that went to the trouble of telling AGA we’re worth a look in! We bloody love you guys, as much as we bloody love gaming!

If you’ve only just heard about the Australian Games Awards, they are the first major gaming awards event to hit Australia, and will be held at Luna Park in Sydney, December 19. We also caught up with the director of the AGA’s, Joel Van Daal, in episode 103 of the Game On AUS podcast, where we went in depth about how the night will come together to shine a light on the Australian gaming and Esports industry.

We’re super proud to represent an ever growing community of “the average Australian gamer” at Game On AUS, if you think we’re worthy of the gong make sure you vote now, remember when Guy Sebastian won Australian Idol when it should’ve been Shannon Noll? Let’s not make that same mistake again.

For the full list of nominees in every category, just keep scrolling down the page past the social buttons.
