Friday, 11th September 2020

The Virtual Play Creators Awards, announced on Friday 11th September 2020, celebrates those in the toy and game design community that have excelled over the last 12 months. Whether it’s an R&D team responsible for a smash-hit line, a design agency that’s taken a brief and soared or a freelance designer responsible for the next Pie Face, the PCAs are all about shining a spotlight on the industry’s top architects of play.

The winners of the Virtual Play Creators Awards will be announced with video interviews with all winners shared on the day.

* Please note as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, this year’s Play Creators Awards will now be an expanded virtual event.
