Thank you for being part of the G.A.N.G. Awards nomination process! A version of this document in Japanese is available here. 

Please read the brief instructions below carefully. Doing so will ensure your nomination will be properly entered for consideration.

1)      When making a nomination you must have the following information

All Entries
Name of Game
Link to example of content (youtube/soundcloud/ iTunes, etc.)
Release Date

For music awards, you must also provide

For Best Game/Cover Remix, you must also provide:
Original Composer

2)      Verify  that your nomination was released for the first time in calendar year 2016.

3)      For “Best audio for an Indie Game,” please verify that it was NOT published or funded by a third party publishers; “Indie” games are self-published/funded (including kickstarter, etc.)

You may nominate others’ work.  However, before doing so, please contact the composer and/or developer to ensure that they haven’t already submitted the work.

If the same work is submitted by the composer/publisher and another party, we will use the submission from the original composer/publisher.

You may enter multiple musical selections from a single title, but note that it has been our experience that generally a title be represented by a single entry, so as not to dilute votes. If multiple nominations for a single title are made by someone other than the composer/publisher, the composer/publisher will have the option of picking a single entry for the title.

Thank you again for participating in the 2016 G.A.N.G. Awards Process!
