Game Changers becomes a permanent fixture of GamesIndustry.biz
Nominations re-open for our series celebrating folks making the games industry a better place
We said last year that we wanted to go bigger with Game Changers – and we meant it.
When it first began, Game Changers was a series of short profiles crammed into December. This year, we extended this into in-depth interviews – which have been running throughout the past month – looking closer at the work selected groups and individuals are doing to improve the games industry.
And we plan to continue. Just as the work of our Game Changers is ongoing, so too will be our efforts to raise awareness of what they are doing.
Rather than being an editorial event run at a specific time of year, Game Changers will now become a regular feature on GamesIndustry.biz. At least once a month, we'll be shining a light on the efforts of folks going the extra mile to address imbalances in diversity, inclusivity, accessibility and more – and we need your help.
Nominations for Game Changers are now open. Permanently.
We want your suggestions for people who are going above and beyond to make the industry a better place. Just send us their name, pronouns, a couple of paragraphs on why you think they are a good fit for the series, and any relevant/helpful links to firstname.lastname@example.org.
