Members of the public can now nominate candidates for the 2016 UK Live Action RolePlay Awards. The awards are designed to raise public awareness of the hobby, which allows people to immerse themselves fully in fictional realities. The 2016 awards reflect the growing interest in these sort of games by introducing two new categories; Best Mainstream Event - for things that aren’t actually LARPs but have a lot of LARP crossovers, like horror events or Secret Cinema - and Best Escape Room, for escape room style events.

The winners will be announced at LARPCON at the Hermitage Leisure Centre, Whitwick on the February 26th – 28th. You can nominate candidates by filling in this survey, and you find out more about LARPCON here.

The full list of categories are:

Best Small LARP of the Year (less than 30 players)
