Nominations for the Pocket Gamer Mobile Games Awards 2024 are live!

If you got through April by cowering in a corner with only the soothing embrace of a luxurious fleece blanket for comfort because you concluded we'd ditched the Pocket Gamer Mobile Games Awards, we have news. Not only are they still very much happening, the nomination phase has in fact just gone live and submissions are now being accepted.

The only thing that has changed is that we've moved the event from its usual April slot to a new summer spot: August 20th, to be precise, which slaps the awards just before the start of this year's Gamescom. Oh, and it might be useful to know they're happening alongside the show in Cologne, rather than their traditional London location.

Blame Brexit.

(Sorry – that joke never gets old.)

Anyway, timing and location apart, one thing that won't be changing is our awards' critical mission of shining the brightest of spotlights on the very best of our industry.

Which is where you come in. We need YOUR nominations across this year's 22 categories (see below). Yes, anything released, actioned, and achieved that impressed, engrossed, astounded, or humbled is ideal candidate material.

If you love it, we want to reward it

So long as it falls within a January 2023 to June 2024 timeframe (an extension on the typical 12-month window given this year's new date), it's all good.

Aside from the stability that the nominations process brings, we've also kept things unchanged when it comes to the voting element. Once we've processed all your submissions and conjured up a shortlist, expect to be able to cast your vote to help select the winners.

But we're getting ahead of ourselves…

How do you nominate?

It's simple. Head to the Pocket Gamer Mobile Games Awards website and fill in the form for the relevant awards you'd like to submit for.

It can be your game, team, product, service, or - if you're feeling equitable - why not reward and congratulate another company's efforts?
