Cybersmile Launch Global #OURGAMING Campaign

Everybody ranging from first-time gamers right through to World Champions and industry professionals will have the opportunity to share their opinions, thoughts and perspectives on important gaming related issues such as inclusion, empathy, resilience and more!

We are excited to announce the launch of the #OURGAMING campaign that will share the thoughts and perspectives of novice, veteran and professional gamers, esports professionals and industry specialists through user generated video content. Entrants are being asked to share their thoughts through video on a series of continuously evolving questions about gaming, sports and the video games industry as a whole – with the chance of winning one of three incredible prizes including a PS4 Pro with PSVR, the Xbox One X or an Alienware desktop PC along with a host of games!

The video entries will be compiled into a whole library of gaming related video content that will reinforce the importance of inclusive gaming and facilitate self-awareness with players of all levels and industry professionals sharing their thoughts on key topics including mutual respect, gaming etiquette, the importance of diversity, the development of new gamers and much more.

“We’ve seen through our work that exposure to varying perspectives not only offers educational insight into specific topics but also helps with personal development in areas such as empathy, emotional resilience and self-awareness. With an ever growing library of gaming related videos containing diverse perspectives it is our hope that gamers and professionals of all levels will be able to contribute and learn from the campaign regardless of experience or ability.”

Iain Alexander, Head of Engagement, The Cybersmile Foundation
