Girl Gamers Battle It Out In Sydney
by Kerry Finch ■ July 23, 2019
The third annual GIRLGAMER Sydney Festival took place from June 9 to 10, 2019.
This is an exciting year for the event as it is the first time this eSports celebration will be going worldwide, with it coming to a close in Dubai later this year.
This live two-day event celebrated talented and successful video gaming females who competed in front of crowds as they fought to claim the top spot in the GIRLGAMER World Championships.
Teams competed by playing a variety of games including popular titles like Overwatch and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
Carnage Esports claimed the top spot this year, beating Fusion-Gaming with a 2-0 score. This team of talented young women will now be going on to represent Australia in Dubai and will compete against teams from Europe, North America, and Latin America.
The event is set to continue in Seoul, South Korea as well as Madrid, Spain in September and then land in Sao Paulo, Brazil on October 5, 2019.
A Celebration Loaded with Exciting Events
There were a number of keynote speeches delivered from female leaders in the industry. Some of the most notable speakers include Kelsey Gamble, Celeste as well as Erin, Mivaro, Nayxy, and Brijay from WomANZ.
Panel discussions were held, and every attendee had the opportunity of forging lifelong connections with other young techies who were just as passionate about gaming as they are.
What may have been the favourite part of the event was, as always, the free gaming area where female avatars could play co-op or compete against one another in a variety of games.
