It’s a stacked cast of nominees for the awards this year, with some people and organizations being so reputable that they are already nominated for multiple awards. G2 Esports is one such example, with representation across four categories, while a player like the Call of Duty League and Dallas Empire’s Anthony ‘Shotzzy’ Cuevas, is up for both rookie and console player of the year awards. 

To vote on the awards, visit the Esports Awards website where you have until November 8 for the community, industry, and creative awards, and an undetermined date for the pro and on-air talent awards.
