Nominees

The Tbreak annual awards are the most respected technology and gaming awards in the Middle East. Nominees for the Tbreak Awards are open but based on products that we have received from a manufacturer, their official PR agency or a retailer.

Once the nominations are finalised, selected judges award points to each product on a scale of 1-10 and the product with the highest number of points in each category is chosen as the winner. For awards that are related to events or organisations, our judges collectively vote on and decide from the nominations.
