This award celebrates people who have done something truly extraordinary for the RuneScape and Old School communities. This year is no exception.
Prezleek is primarily known for her artistic prowess, but she's winning a Golden Gnome for something much more significant - using the power of her craft to bring the community together, across both RuneScape and Old School. She has provided happiness, humour, and positivity via her self-proclaimed "silly little comics" for many years, but her efforts are so much more than that.
Prezleek has contributed her work to charity initiatives that have raised huge amounts for amazing causes, and she's helped give confidence to countless budding artists - via collaborations, starting an artists' Discord server, and providing support and encouragement to anyone wanting guidance on their art.
Prezleek epitomises everything that is great about our communities: selflessness, creativity, and the spreading of joy.
A big congratulations to all of the winners!
