These awards sponsored by Electronic Arts, honour the contribution of women to the European games industry.

    Alison Cressey, Entertainment Industry Consultant and WIGJ Advisory Board member said. “The Hall of Fame seeks to highlight the significant contribution of women to the games industry as well as promote role models to those women considering working in games. Voted on by over 2500 peers in the Women in Games Jobs network, we hope this will become an annual event.”

    Ginger Graham, Global Diversity and Inclusion Manager, Electronic Arts commented “EA is proud to sponsor the WIGJ Hall of Fame award for 2011. We know that without the strength of the women in our industry, we would lack the necessary diversity of thought to be as innovative, creative and inspired as we have become. EA applauds the nominees and those who will be a part of the future of gaming.”
