About Gaming Champions
Gaming Champions are awards for those who are amazingly passionate about video games and use them to do good. As digital culture becomes more prevalent, we broaden our horizons and use technology to enrich and sometimes even save lives. We believe games can play such a role in the modern world too.
We want to celebrate the gaming community and show that it inspires, teaches, and has a hugely positive impact on society. Our goal is to promote „gaming ambassadors” – outstanding individuals whose passion elevated the art of playing games to the next level.
Thanks to games everyone can spark a positive change in their environment, regardless of their gender, age or profession. Gaming Champions are among us!
Gaming Champions is an initiative aimed at spreading the positive use of video games in society. We want to raise awareness of games as a medium that can have an incredible impact on our daily lives through an unprecedented level of interactivity. Games are not only entertaining, but can also serve as a tool for telling stories, building empathy, learning or creating experiences.
In order to distinguish as many people and stories as possible, we have singled out four categories of winners within the Gaming Champions initiative.
Life-saving – the people we award in this category distinguished themselves with incredible cunning, using techniques they’ve learned through video games to save someone in the real world or to help someone survive through the use of a game itself.
Accessibility – nominees in this category have used video games to help people with disabilities or have supported the development of tools that provide them with support in their daily lives, including interactive entertainment.
Community – it’s a category for those who value human community as the highest form of organization and create bonds using video games as a tool to bring people together, bring down mental walls and build connections.
Education – Education champions are players who use video games for scientific purposes, help people around them to become more sensitive to certain social phenomena or convey valuable content through gaming.
