eSports Industry Awards: Here’s the Full List of Winners

E-sports history was made last night with the first ever eSports Industry Awards.

The first of its kind, the event awarded international achievements across the industry, from teams and streamers to the technology that makes it all possible. 18 awards were presented in total, each acknowledging excellence in a specific area, including eSports game of the year and awards for journalism and media coverage.

The ceremony was hosted by Julia Hardy of BBC Radio 1 and the Gadget Show’s Jason Bradbury at The Brewery in central London, and streamed live to an audience of over 40,000 Twitch viewers.
