[Update]: The Steam Awards 2021 winners have now been revealed, and I'm happy to say the Steam community has voted for a quality batch of games!

If you still have some money left over after the avalanche of sales that have been unleashed over the past few weeks, you'll be happy to hear that Steam will soon be throwing their hat into the ring as well. And when I say soon, I really do mean that as the great Steam Winter Sale is arriving in a couple of hours!

The start of the Winter Sale will also mark the start of the Steam Awards voting process. So if you're interested in giving a bit of extra recognition to your favorite games and developers, make sure to cast your votes across the numerous categories before January 3rd, as that's when the winners will be announced.

It's also worth mentioning that despite being a fairly big event, the Steam Awards are an entirely community-driven effort and as such are a bit of a popularity contest. So don't be too surprised or disappointed if some outlandish candidates end up at the top of their respective categories. The Steam Awards are more of a celebration of games than an actual awards ceremony, after all, so actually winning isn't nearly as important as being singled out as one of the best games or developers out there.

So once the Winter Sale arrives make sure to choose your favorites, cast your votes, and have fun with it all!
