The 2nd Annual Impy Awards

Ready to celebrate a year of amazing creations in Dreams? So are we! The 2nd Annual Impy Awards will be taking place on 14th February 2021 which, rather conveniently, is also Dreams’ 1st birthday! To join the party, submit your nominations starting… TODAY! Then tune in to our made-in-Dreams, award-packed and even-more-ambitious-than-last-year broadcast in February.

We’re introducing some new categories based on coMmunity feedback, adding a new in-game Impys hub, and finding new ways to celebrate Dreams players and creators throughout the show. We’ve also added the ability to submit your nominations directly from the Dreams companion site,

Below you’ll find the list of categories for The 2nd Annual Impy Awards. You’ll notice some new additions (Best VR Experience, Favourite Video Creator) as well as a few changes (like replacing The Aww-ward with Scare of the Year). Have a read through the categories and consider the Dreams and dreamers you think deserve an Impys nod.
