Submissions for the BelgianGameAwards 2020 wrapped up with close to 50 entries. That means another daunting task for the jury to select the nominees and ultimately decide who takes home the prize. Here are this year’s brave souls who signed up for the job.
- Tom Henderikx and Philip Cremers are the current marketing tandem at video game retailer Game Mania. They create regular video content where they amaze viewers with their video game knowledge and passion.
- Ronald Meeus is freelance writer covering video games and the games industry for publications such as 9lives, De Morgen, Het Laatste Nieuws, Data News, and Invader Magazine for more than 15 years.
- Jedidjah Julia Noomen is a Dutch script writer and narrative designer. She started her career in film, tv, and theatre and transitioned to games. Most recently she wrote the full audio based game Alt Frequencies for Accidental Queens. She’s also programmer Games & VR for Imagine Film Festival.
- Lisa Pardoen works at Quai 10 cultural center as a host. She’s discovered the world of video games during her studies at HEAJ in Namur and loves to share her passion, for instance by hosting workshops to teach young people how to create video games.
- Heiny Reimes is a Dutch indie games evangelist and content manager for Utomik. Away from the office he puts lesser known indies in the spotlight on Twitter and hosts a popular Discord channel where indies are able to help each other out.
- Jehanne Rousseau is CEO and lead writer at French game studio Spiders. She’s been in the industry since 1998 and co-founded Spiders 10 years later, creating succesful games such as The Technomancer and Greedfall.
- Christophe De bont is the only surviving member from last year’s jury duty and crazy enough to do it once more. He’s a freelance journalist that’s been writing about games since 2006 and currently covers games for De Standaard.
The Belgian Game Awards 2020 will be presented on February 21 at 1UP Conference in Kortrijk. Stay tuned to our blog to find out who gets nominated later this month.
This celebration of #BelgianGamesIndustry success wouldn’t be possible without the valued support of WALGA, ScreenBrussels, VAF|GAME, Flanders DC, and Cronos Interactive.
