The awards are for those working in the esports industry within the UK, or who have worked in it over the past year. Finalists are due to be announced soon recognising talent across 16 categories, including Player of the Year, Caster of the Year and many more.
Esports News UK joined up with fellow news site UKCSGO to work on the UK Esports Awards, which was announced back in February this year.
You might remember this 2016 ENUK Awards article, which featured a mix of serious and light-hearted awards in article form.
It had a good reception, and gave us the idea to turn it into an actual event. UKCSGO founder Adam “Blanks” Heath also had that idea, and so we decided to join forces and help recognise some of the UK’s top esports talent, from players to casters, organisations to staff and more.
