As well as the individual awards, there are also a number of Esports Awards up for grabs for the companies behind the action.

Finally, there are a number of awards up for grabs for esports organizations primarily concerning their produced content. Below are the awards in which organizations involved in Rainbow Six are nominated for:

Last year, Michael "KiXSTAr" Stockley was crowned the Color Caster of the Year, an award he was nominated for again this year just two weeks before his death. G2 Esports, meanwhile, took home the award for Esports Organization of the Year.
