BAFTA Interactive Awards

The BAFTA Interactive Awards and BAFTA Games Awards were created in 2003 by splitting the original BAFTA Interactive Entertainment Awards into two separate ceremonies.[1]

While the previous ceremonies had been annually hosted each October since 1998, the 2003 Interactive Awards weren't held until 19 February of the following year,[2] while the 2004 event took place on 2 March 2005.[3]

In March 2006, BAFTA issued a press release announcing that "Video Games are as Important as Film and Television", and reinstated the Games Awards to the traditional October slot.[4] No mention of Interactive Awards was made, and all traces of the ceremony vanished shortly afterwards when BAFTA's website was reorganised, making it the shortest running event in BAFTA's history.[5]
