People's Choice Award 2021

About the Pocket Gamer People's Choice Award 2021

What is the PG People’s Choice Award?
The PG People’s Choice is a key category within the PG Mobile Games Awards, run by our mobile games industry-focused sibling site,, specifically designed to give you, the players, the opportunity to nominate and vote for your favourite mobile gaming experience of the past year.

Okay. So what are the PG Mobile Games Awards?
Not to be confused with the Pocket Gamer Awards 2021 which ran earlier this year, the Pocket Gamer Mobile Games Awards recognise the work of the top games companies in the industry over the whole of 2020. In this pandemic-affected year they took place a little later than usual, on Tuesday, July 20th.

The awards’ 22 categories represent teams spanning the whole industry, from the games developers and publishers to the tools companies, service providers, support agencies, investors and recruiters that all make this sector the largest and most pervasive in gaming.

So where do I vote for my favourite game?
Bless your enthusiasm. But we're done for this time out. The first phase of the PG People’s Choice award was to nominate your ‘game of the year’ (released during 2020). Once those came in, we gathered them all up and created a shortlist. At that point you could vote for your favourite from the bunch.

Is there a deadline for nominations?
There was indeed: midnight on Tuesday, May 21st.

And what about the voting bit?
The 'voting bit' has also been and gone now (the deadline this year was Wednesday, June 30th).

When will the People’s Choice winner be announced?
We revealed the Pocket Gamer People’s Choice award during the PG Mobile Games Awards 2021 ceremony on Tuesday, July 20th.
