Global Industry Game Awards

Voting is now open: VOTE HERE

The Global Industry Game Awards (GIGA) are peer determined awards in celebration of the contributions of discipline teams and individuals. Game industry award shows do not focus on the achievements of the individuals and discipline teams within our industry, so GIGA is an opportunity to turn the spotlight on them instead.
