The Esports Awards revealed the first wave of finalists for some of their categories this week, giving us a look at who is up for an award this year. We have the list of those finalists below for you to check out in categories like Mobile Game of the Year and Personality of the Year. The organization also revealed that they are adding two new creative awards with Esports Creative Team of the Year and Esports Content Pieces of The Year. According to them, after the overwhelming community feedback, they felt "it was important to uphold its values of reaching and celebrating all areas of the industry." They will also be bringing back the Lifetime Achievement Award for 2020, but because of COVID-19, they are ditching the live esports competitions during the event. At the moment, the organization has still not settled on a date for the awards to take place.

The Esports Awards 2020 will take place sometime near the end of the year.
