2002 ENnie Awards

The 2nd annual ENnie awards were handed out in a ceremony on Friday, August 9, at Gencon.

ENnies are given to d20 game products and creators to recognize outstanding achievement in the realm of Open Gaming. The awards originated with EN World, a leading web site devoted to d20 gaming that features resources, industry news, and message forums.

ENnies were awarded in 16 standard categories and one special category. The nominees were selected by a panel of five independent judges. Final winners were elected through open voting by the gaming public.

While we're thrilled to see so many Wizards of the Coast products and employees on the list, we want to extend our heartfelt congratulations to all the winners and nominees and look forward to seeing more great d20 products for 2003.
