You voted, we counted, and the winners of the 10th Annual Golden Gnome Awards have been revealed! But don't fret if you missed our Award Ceremony livestream - we've got a big list of all the winners right here.
But first, let's take a moment to thank everyone in the RuneScape and Old School RuneScape communities for making our games such a wonderful place to be. This year has been difficult, but here at the Golden Gnome Awards we're celebrating all our community members who gave their time and energy to make it that little bit easier, whether they be musicians, artists, video creators, streamers - or just a player with a lot of community spirit.
We'd also like to thank everyone for participating in this historic Golden Gnomes Award. You voted, you viewed, and you talked up a storm - so without further ado, let's see the winners!

This year's Community Champion award goes to the RS and OSRS Wiki!
The Wiki team and their contributors go above and beyond to make the tremendous depth of our games more accessible to everyone. We'd particularly like to highlight their work with the Archaeology and Steam launches for RuneScape and Leagues II - Trailblazer for Old School RuneScape. We've been consciously aware of the Wiki's value for a while and have accordingly implemented more in-game visibility in both Old School RuneScape and RuneScape this year. Here's to many more years of sharing the knowledge, Wiki team! Much of our success is owed to you, and we love you for it x
Outstanding Community Achievement
The award for Outstanding Community Achievement goes to Faux!
This year Faux raised over $57,000 for the St Jude Children's Research Hospital - no small feat, considering it took him and his incredible viewer community just four hours!
But the biggest gesture came when Faux himself sacrificed his Hardcore Ironman account, which had over 3,400 hours of playtime. Here's what Faux had to say on the matter:
"I promise you, that there are kids out there that'd love to have 3,400 more hours in this world. Together as a community we've raised over $57,000. We've raised that much so far. I know some of you are upset that I've let my account go, but this is nothing. 3,400 hours is nothing compared to what some of these kids go through and I appreciate every single one of you that participated today, to make a difference in some kid's life today."
Faux, for your big heart and your abundance of community spirit, we're proud to offer you the first ever award for Outstanding Community Achievement. Congratulations!
The RuneScape Team
