Mark your calendars for January 22, 2019 at 8 pm (pre-show: 7:30 pm)! The New York Videogame Critics Circle, a 501c3 non-profit group of 40 multicultural journalists, is delighted to announce the 8th Annual New York Game Awards Ceremony to be held at the SVA Theater in Manhattan. The show celebrates the Best Games and Game Developers in the industry along with the Circle's non-profit work in underserved communities. The Awards will be hosted by Devin Delliquanti from Comedy Central's "The Daily Show with Trevor Noah." Daniel Radosh, Emmy Award-winning "Daily Show" senior writer and "Liberty Crossing" executive producer, will craft the comedy as well.

Highlights of the ceremony include the Andrew Yoon Legend Award, which will be presented to a very high profile woman in the industry to be named soon! The fourth annual Best Games Journalism Award, voted on by our 40 critics, will also be presented. Two new teen winners of paid internships from the DreamYard Prep School will be named junior critics.

"The DreamYard is a bright light in the poorest Congressional District in the United States. It was the perfect place to begin our mentoring and scholarship work," says Goldberg. "The students are thoughtful and whip smart. And we've had top game executives like Sony's Shawn Layden to speak about pathways into the world of games."

Celebrity guests, presenters, musical acts and trailer premieres will be announced soon!
