Revealed: The GamesIndustry.biz 100 Future Talent (UK)

It's our most diverse list ever

More than 60% of this year's GamesIndustry.biz 100 winners are women, in the most diverse set of winners we've seen so far.

This year's GamesIndustry.biz 100 celebrates the rising stars of the UK games industry. With winners from multiple countries, excelling in different disciplines - from games development and publishing, to event organisation, community management and writing.

You can read profiles on every single winner right here.

The winners have all been invited to attend a special reception this evening in their honour at EGX Rezzed in London, sponsored by recruitment specialists Amiqus. Winners were decided by last year's 100, which were the most influential people working in the UK games business.

We received almost 400 nominations for this year's list, who were put forward from the wider business in a campaign that ran for over six weeks. We then recruited the judges to help us narrow fown the final 100.
