Roblox held its Roblox Innovation Awards 2022 event in San Francisco today, complete with an in-person gala event at Fort Mason.
In a post, Matt Curtis, vice president of developer relations, said the community of creators builds art, music, fashion, and entire worlds that captivate and inspire millions of people every day.
“For years we’ve recognized that passion with an annual virtual award show, but as their accomplishments grow, so does the need to recognize them,” Curtis said. “That’s why this year—and for the first time ever—we held a gala in-person and virtual event at the Roblox Developers Conference in Fort Mason, San Francisco, California: The Roblox Innovation Awards.”
At the largest RDC to date — and between awards featuring guest presenters like Karlie Kloss, MeganPlays, and MiniToon — the company made announcements about the future of the platform and did interviews with creators.
