It doesn’t seem like E3 was all that long ago, but we’re already closing in fast on the next major video game event. Gamescom kicks off in Cologne, Germany on August 5th, and over 300,000 people are expected to attend the event and play upcoming video games. An awards show is always held at Gamescom, and this year’s event will kick off at August 7th at 6:00 PM CEST.

Over 174 entries were sent in, and a special panel of judges has narrowed it down into nominees. Most of the winners will be selected by the panel, but there will also be a “Public Award” category that fans can vote on. Voting begins today via the official Gamescom app. Here’s the list of nominees and categories:
