Drum roll please! The Google Play Awards are back again this year and will take
place Thursday, May 18th at 6:30pm (Pacific Time) during Google I/O, our annual
developer festival.

The annual ceremony is a great opportunity for the industry to recognize
outstanding developers that continue to set the bar for quality apps and games
showing a passion for driving innovation and adoption of new platforms and user
experiences.

This year we’ll be honoring partners across 12 award categories, some familiar
and some new. Nominees were selected much like last year by cross-functional
teams throughout Google who work hand-in-hand with the relevant categories and
product areas. While category specific criteria can be found below, the common
requirements across all categories focused on high star rating, technical
performance and freshness, requiring a launch or major update since April 2016.
The winners of each category will be announced at Google I/O in May.

The full list of categories and nominees are below and can also be found at g.co/play/GPA2017:


Join us live at the ceremony May 18th at 6:30 pm PDT at Google I/O or via the
live stream to see who wins.
