22nd Annual D.I.C.E. Awards Peer Panelists

These industry experts comprise an incredible body of accomplishments in all facets of game craft: art, design, engineering, animation, performance and production. That these game makers determine the D.I.C.E. Awards finalists, distinguishes the D.I.C.E. Awards from all others. 

All Academy voting is conducted by confidential balloting – online, supervised and certified by eBallot, Inc. The integrity of this system coupled with a broad-based voting population of the Academy’s  membership assures that the D.I.C.E. Award recipients are honored among peers. 

The Academy and its Board of Directors thank all of the people who serve as Peer Panelists and who generously volunteer to give up their evenings, weekends and holidays to ensure that the D.I.C.E. Awards truly reflect the industry’s best.
