Following the announcement this morning of nominations opening alongside ticket sales, we take a closer look at the first ever Esports Pro Oceania Awards.
In total 16 Awards will be presented at the 2018 Esports Pro Oceania Awards. Six awards; Best On-Air Personality of the Year, Player of the Year, Play of the Year, Rookie of the Year, Team of the Year and Community Tournament of the Year, will be voted on by the gaming community through Respawn Ninja following the announcement of the finalists in each category in late February. A further eight awards, Industry and Elite Achievement, will be judged a number of independent industry panels.
Two further awards will be presented by EGAA and Trade Media. The EGAA Unsung Hero Award showcases the amazing work done by and individual behind the scenes to help influence and shape the industry. This award is voted on and presented by the EGAA Board. Finally the Esports Pro Oceania Lifetime Achievement Award recognises that our industry is not just built of the back of the brands we work for or with, but it is in fact the people within – that make it what it is today. At Esports Pro Oceania we sought to create an award that recognises not only the long-standing services within the workplace, but those, who for many years have gone above and beyond their day-to-day tasks, in an effort to better present and grow esports across the region.
You can nominate for Consumer, Industry and Elite Achievement Awards through the EGAA Awards Hub and download the Nomination Information Pack for more information on each award. Nominations will close on February 21, 2018.
