The 4th Annual Impy Awards have come to a close, and we’re leaving behind the islands of the Nomi Nations minus a bunch of golden trophies, and plus a tonne of wonderful memories. Oh, and some crab-based trauma. It’s a long story.
If you’re curious, though, you can catch up with this year’s show - and all of our ‘road to the Impys’ livestreams, including Molecule chats, Dreams creator interviews, behind-the-scenes secrets and more - over on our YouTube channel!(opens in new tab)
We had a blast celebrating many of the most brilliant creations and memorable moments from the past 12 months in the Dreamiverse - and showing celebrity guest judges from across a variety of creative industries some of the very best stuff Dreams has to offer.
Thanks to them, we’re now 23 trophies lighter! Not because they stole them. They just helped us with the tricky task of figuring out which creators to hand the prizes to. And you got stuck in too, casting votes for your worthy winners in our eight coMmunity-voted categories.
But WHO ended up taking home the gold? WHO immortalised themselves in Dreams history and entered the hallowed halls of Impys infamy? And WHO let an owl into this blog post? The noise is incredibly irritating.
All these questions (okay, not the owl one, that was a joke) are answered below. Take a look at the winners of the 4th Annual Impy Awards!
