The T3 Awards 2021 shortlist has been revealed by our sister publication, T3.
With the tech brand turning 25 years old in September, this year's awards show will be the biggest in its history, with 94 categories in total.
The winners of the T3 Awards 2021 will be announced throughout the week of Monday 7 June and all will appear in issue 322 of T3 magazine on sale Wednesday 9 June.
With the public nominations process has now closed, we've picked out the strongest contenders from hundreds of entries and T3 has added a load more of its own, including the best stuff announced since the 2020 T3 Awards as well as products that have scored highly in their T3 reviews and T3 buying guides. You can see all of the shortlisted entries here.
The next step is for the T3 judging panel to choose the winners. As well as announcing the winners in all their key areas – tech, AV, home and garden, watches, travel, outdoors, auto, style, wellness, and fitness – they'll also be handing out awards in their headline categories. So in T3's awards week in June, you'll know who's been crowned the greatest gadget, brand, retailer, the best gadget under £100 / $100, the tech innovation of the year, and who has picked up the sustainability award.
Also for 2021, given that so many of us have been working from home, there is also a new category called WFH Heroes where they'll be recognizing the people, products, and services that have helped make life easier over the last 12 months.
Still, let's get to the nominations for the T3 Gaming category...
