The 2018 Women In Games List

The 2018 Women In Games List seeks to highlight the achievements of 50 women from across the industry over the past 12-months.

This year’s list was voted on by ten senior industry members. The panel will also shortly vote across the 10 categories to be presented at the 2018 Women In Games Awards presented by Xbox.

The women in this year’s list will now be individually profiled in the lead up to the Women In Games Lunch presented by Xbox on Friday August 10. We ask, that if you are one of the below entrants, you please reach out to joel@trade-media.com.au

This year’s lunch will be free for all Women and non-binary members thanks to the support of Xbox, Bethesda, IGEA, Five Star Games, Telstra Broadcast Services and Akamai. A limited amount of tickets has been made available for men looking to support team members and women from across the industry. All guests will need to register for the lunch using this form.
