Submissions for “Fan Favorite” category for VGMO’s 2018 annual awards now open
As the year comes to a close, we at VGMO have been enthusiastically thinking about this year’s Annual Game Music Awards. Due to the popularity of our new “Fan Favorite” category last year, it will be returning again this year.
This category will be entirely decided on by the public; anybody is welcome to submit three game soundtracks released for the first time this year (either in-game or as an official soundtrack release) to be entered. Entries are due December 15 at 11:59, Pacific Time. At the end of December, we will post the top five submitted soundtracks as nominations in the “Fan Favorite” category, alongside all of our other categories. The winner will be announced in January of 2019.
Submit your favorite 2018 game soundtracks here!
The eigthh awards ceremony of this kind, the AGMAs are intended to celebrate achievement across the game audio industry and give recognition to the incredibly creative people working in it. While ‘best music’ and ‘best sound’ categories are featured in other video game awards, the majority of these awards only commemorate top-selling video games and overlook other often-excellent productions (e.g., import and indie soundtracks). The winners will be announced in January.

Would soundtracks for expansions/DLC count if the content or soundtrack was released this year?
(i.e. Destiny 2: Forsaken).
We are! We’ve already had some submissions for expansions/DLC (Xenoblade 2: Torna, etc.) so feel free to include them.
