Esports industry awards show Esports Awards will take place in Las Vegas in November 2023.
The final awards ceremony will take place on November 29th and 30th, with the organisers also revealing some changes to the format. The awards show has also introduced the first edition of the Scholars, a collegiate gaming awards ceremony.
The Esports Awards are a long-standing esports award ceremony, founded in 2015. The Awards aim to be a prestigious event that commends the best in the industry, including players, streamers, teams, organisations and other important figures in the esports world.
The 2023 edition brings some changes to the Esports Awards format. According to the organisers, this year’s event will feature a self-nomination format, which will be open to B2B professionals and media outlets in the esports industry. The new format will allow for easier applications and give better chances to potential winners, regardless of their following.
The Esports Awards have also partnered with 5GRV: Gamers on the Road, a reality series that will see its second season conclude at the Awards. The show will cover the lives of three streamers and end with them presenting the Esports Host of the Year Award in Las Vegas.
The 2023 awards will see the return of well-known categories such as Esports Personality of the Year, Esports Game of the Year, and Esports Organisation of the Year. The nominations for the Awards will be open between July 1st and July 7th.
Mike Ashford, CEO of the Esports Awards, commented: “We could not be more excited to continue our legacy of recognising and rewarding excellence in the industry, and honouring the industry that has made many a dream come true, including ours.
“Having recognised the potential of the collegiate scene, we’ve introduced the Scholars as a way to provide players, individuals, and organisations in the collegiate their own platform. We look forward to seeing talented individuals from across the world join us for some well-deserved celebrations in November.”
