When will the LCS Summer Split awards be announced?

TL;DR: The winners of the 2016 LCS Summer Split awards will be announced this month, starting with the North American and European All-LCS Teams on Wednesday, August 10 on PrimeTime League.

The 2016 LCS Summer Split regular season is all wrapped up! Now it’s time to honor the LCS pros and coaches who displayed superior teamwork, mastery, and strategy this Summer. Here’s a quick recap of the awards and when you can find out who wins.

What are the awards and how are the winners chosen?

There are four awards up for grab. In June, we confirmed the methodology behind the Summer Split awards. Those awards are: All-LCS Team, Coach of the Split, Rookie of the Split, and Most Valuable Player (MVP) awards.

The North American and European All-LCS team is made of the best pro players by position from their respective regions.

Who votes on the awards?

As we announced in June, the awards will be voted on by LCS broadcast team, 3rd party media, and pro teams.

We’ve made a split update on the voting panels:

  • For North America, the 3rd Party Media category will include journalists as well as 3rd party analysts.
  • In Europe, the 3rd Party Media category will also include independent analysts along with foreign language Broadcast partners.

When will ballots and the full awards panel become available?

After each award is presented, panelist ballots will be released within 24 hours on Lolesports.

The full voting panel will be shared after the first award is presented on August 10. All panelists who agreed to participate but fail to submit votes will be listed as “declined to vote.”
