The*gameHERs will host their second annual awards series to celebrate women in gaming this November.

The awards recognise women across a number of categories within esports, game development, content creation (including Twitch streamers), charity work, marketing, and rising stars.

The*gameHERs is an online platform that supports and empowers women gamers. Earlier this year they launched a women’s collegiate division in esports.

With women gamers suffering from harassment in online spaces, the awards will be a celebration of women throughout the industry.

“We are thrilled to launch year two of our award series to celebrate the incredible accomplishments of all women across gaming,” said Heather Ouida, Co-Founder of the*gameHERs. 

“This year, we are collaborating with influential women and forward thinking sponsors to continue driving interest and create an inclusive community for gamers alike. As our platform continues to grow, our goal is to amplify the voices of women by providing a safe space to be themselves. We are working to educate and connect women through our impactful events such as the awards and much more.”

The nomination period for the awards will begin on 6 August, with public voting open from 5 – 25 September. 

The awards will be live-streamed on the*gameHERs Twitch channel in November. Sponsors include gaming and tech giants like Logitech, PrizePicks, V1SIONARIES and iFOLIO.

2020’s inaugural the*gameHERs Awards was seen by 10.6 million on the Twitch live stream, with 600 nominations and 70,000 votes.
