War of Awards” is a campaign and event designed to engage the entire gaming population in the otherwise elite horse race of video game awards season. Each organisation's award serves as a "play-off," with winners advancing to the fan-made "SuperBowl" known as the live debate "caucus," where supporters anoint the best of the season’s winners at the March 30 event (TBA), streamed live from Boston.
