It's with great pride that we can reveal that Nintendo Life's Alex Olney has been announced as a finalist in the YouTuber category for the 2015 Games Media Awards. Taking place at the Bloomsbury Ballroom in London, the awards celebrate the best of games writing and the games media in the UK.

Under Alex's watch we've seen our YouTube channel grow rapidly to 55,000 subscribers in a short space of time. Subscribers have warmed to Alex's charming personality and his "Hello there lovely people" catchphrase. Producing a daily video is quite the undertaking, but Alex manages this with great aplomb.

It's quite the honour for Alex to make it as a finalist and it is a tribute to the hard work he's been putting in on our YouTube channel for the past year. While he's up against some still competition from YouTube heavyweights such as Matt Lees in his category, we're sure Alex will just be pleased to rub shoulders with the crème de la crème of UK games media.

We hope you will join with us in congratulating Alex on this fantastic achievement and wish him the best of British luck at the awards on Wednesday, October 14th at the Bloomsbury Ballroom in London.

We'll leave you with an example of what all the critics are raving about.
