The festival’s themes revolved around digital inequality, diversity, and mental health, shining a light on the potential for gaming and esports to make a meaningful difference in people’s lives.

Emma rose to fame last year when she won gold at the Commonwealth ESports Championships in Birmingham, with the competition being included as a pilot event at the Commonwealth Games.

She came out on top in eFootball, the major franchise formerly known as Pro Evolution Soccer which is the second biggest football game after Fifa. The 32-year-old, who was born on the North Coast but now lives in Belfast, came out on top against over 100 other gamers.
