The 2021 Australian PC Awards kick off this week, with a nightly livestream starting from 7:30PM AEDT on Wednesday, June 23. After that, the show will return on Thursday and Friday at the same time, with each night bringing new verdicts, prizes and shenanigans.

The APCAs celebrate the best PC hardware and components available in Australia, as voted by our expert editors across TechRadar, T3, PC PowerPlay and TechLife. If you're keen to follow along live, you can tune in here come Wednesday night.

Why three nights? Because there are 26 categories, ranging best graphics card through to best reseller. It's a big event, and to celebrate it, the APCAs are giving away AU$15,254 worth of PC gear—a big chunk of it gaming centric.
