Welcome to the Play Creators Awards 2022

The Play Creators Awards 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 rising star that’s soared or a inventor or design studio responsible for a smash-hit, the PCAs are all about shining a spotlight on the industry’s top architects of play.

Among the big winners in 2021 were TOMY, Fuse, Erik Quam and Kenn Morton, while Rob Ames and Luc Hudson (Triclops Studio) scooped the Design Icon accolade.

This year’s Play Creators Awards will take place on Tuesday, September 6th at the Union Ale House within London’s Twickenham Stadium.

As nominated by their peers, the finalists are:
