MEGAMIGS Awards

2022 EDITION


THE MEGAMIGS AWARDS ARE COMING BACK!

29 June 2022 MEGAMIGS

 

REGISTRATION FOR THE MEGAMIGS AWARDS HAS OPENED!

The MEGAMIGS Awards will be back in person for the 2022 edition at the Bonaventure Hotel from October 19th to 22nd! The ceremony, which will take place on October 22nd, is dedicated to rewarding the excellence of the productions and actors in our industry present at MEGAMIGS.

La Guilde du jeu vidéo du Québec considers that diversity within a team is an important factor of innovation. Indeed, it is the presence of diverse perspectives, including those from marginalized communities, that allows us to innovate together for each and every one. For this reason, extra points will be awarded to teams that include one or more members of communities that are underrepresented within the industry.
