TIGA Games Industry Awards 2024

The TIGA Games Industry Awards (www.tiga.org/awards) are back for 2024, with nominations now open for game developers and publishers, educators, technology and service providers, until midnight on Friday August 2nd.
The awards ceremony will take place on Thursday November 28th at the iconic Shoreditch Town Hall. Opened in 1866, the building played an important role in East End culture, first as a Music Hall and later as a boxing venue. It is now run by the Shoreditch Town Hall Trust which has firmly established the venue as an arts, events and community space.
