RuneFest 2019 is underway and what better way to start than with The Golden Gnome Awards?
This massively popular annual event celebrates the immense amount of talent we have within the RuneScape community. RuneScape is nothing without its players, and there is no greater pleasure for us than shouting out loud and proud about their many great achievements.
And without further ado, we’re delighted to reveal this year’s winners!
THE GOLDEN GNOME 2019 WINNERS
Community Champion of the Year - Prezleek
This award celebrates people who have done something truly extraordinary for the RuneScape community. This year is no exception.
Prezleek is primarily known for her artistic prowess, but she's winning a Golden Gnome for something much more significant - using the power of her craft to bring the community together, across both RuneScape and Old School. She has provided happiness, humour, and positivity via her self-proclaimed "silly little comics" for many years, but her efforts are so much more than that.
Prezleek has contributed her work to charity initiatives that have raised huge amounts for amazing causes, and she's helped give confidence to countless budding artists - via collaborations, starting an artists' Discord server, and providing support and encouragement to anyone wanting guidance on their art.
Prezleek epitomises everything that is great about our communities: selflessness, creativity, and the spreading of joy.
A big congratulations to all of the winners!
