Categories include Best Online Game Design Award which will honor overall excellence of design in an online game, and Best Online Visual Arts Award, which will honor online games including, but not limited to, character and animation design, interface design and 2D or 3D art creation and direction.
In addition, the Online Game Legend Award will be presented to an individual who has changed the world of online games. A classic online game will be inducted into the GDC Online Awards Hall Of Fame. Online voting runs through June 30 and is open to all game development professionals holding a Gamasutra.com user account.
"With the explosive growth of online games, we're delighted to recognize and honor all the great work that's being done in the space," says Simon Carless, global brand director of the UBM TechWeb Game Network, which is organizing the conference.
