Valve Corporation revealed today that they have officially opened up nominations for the 2020 version of The Steam Awards. They're back again as you can nominate new games into categories for them to potentially win an award. The catch to the system (aside from the requirement of a Steam account) is that you can only nominate from a certain pool of games that qualify in specific categories, or games you specifically own, as a way to prevent cheating or ballot-stuffing. We have a snippet from the FAQ below and you can start nominating games by going to the link above. You can nominate between November 25th and December 1st, with winners being announced on January 3rd.
