Nominations for the Pocket Gamer Mobile Games Awards 2021 are now live

Did you really think we'd skip this year's  Pocket Gamer Mobile Games Awards?

Not a chance.

We've had to adapt the timings, sure, but we're delighted to confirm the fourth edition of the event that showcases the very best of this mighty industry will take place on Tuesday, July 20th (updated) - during PG Connects London 2021, in fact.

Between now and then we'll simply have to whittle down the thousands of games, teams, and support and associated services to a shortlist that reflects the astonishing talent thriving at the heart of this sector.

That's a hefty task, but it's also where you come in. We're looking for your nominations across this year's 22 categories (some tweaked, some brand new) and are asking you to focus on anything released, actioned or achieved during the whole of 2020 that you feel deserves recognition.

How do you nominate?

Head to the Pocket Gamer Mobile Games Awards website and fill in the form(s) for the relevant awards you'd like to lobby for.

You can nominate your own or another company's efforts you think should be considered.

Nominations will close on May 18th.

We'll then work out the finalists, hand them over to a panel of illustrious industry judges to vote for the winners, and reveal those on the night of the ceremony.

But you can't win if you're not in – so get nominating.

  1. Pocket Gamer People's Choice
