Wired picked up 'Gaming Campaign of the Year - Under £500k' at last night's MCVAwards in London! A huge thank-you to MCV, our amazing developer Caged Element Inc. and of course all of our players for supporting the title!
The awards this year were spread broadly, with no single company picking up more than one trophy. That’s a testament to our award-specific, specialist judging panels, picking the best teams, products and campaigns in their respective categories.
The ceremony returned to The Brewery again this year, with a very special interactive multiplayer warm-up for the whole crowd from WiFi Wars and plenty of time for attendees to mingle and chat at the extended drinks reception and after-party.
We’d like to take this opportunity to thank our sponsors and event partners: Amiqus, Bespoke Arcades, Frontier Developments, Gamescom, Heaven Media, Little Big PR and Ukie – plus our charity partner GamesAid. The awards wouldn't happen without the continued support of the industry. The editorial team would also like to thank the events team, which made it all happen.
