We’re on the frontline of the search for excellence in the games industry today, as we announce that we’re sponsoring the new Game Dev Heroes initiative. Game Dev Heroes is the only national awards ceremony to celebrate game developers individually for their contributions to studios, teams and projects. We’re proud to be shining a spotlight on the unsung heroes and hidden visionaries behind our favourite titles.
It’s now down to you to nominate the heroes at your studio and get them the recognition they deserve. With categories spanning development, management, marketing & community, the studio ‘Unsung Hero’, and ‘Diversity Champion, there’s a category to suit all. The submission deadline is Tuesday 19th June 2018, so make sure to get your nominations polished up and submitted ASAP. An award will also be given to highlight a member of the industry for their Outstanding Contribution, which will be chosen by the judging panel.
The judging panel will be made up of industry legends, senior management teams and HR professionals from a range of studios, plus our Account Manager, Jamie Clarke and representatives from the other Game Dev Heroes partners. Sponsoring alongside us are one of our Recruitment Agency partners Aardvark Swift, along with Analog and Launchpad.
The award winners are set to be announced on Tuesday 10th July as part of a Game Dev Heroes networking event, held in Brighton throughout Develop Conference week. The event is free to attend but will be ticketed entry – to be notified when tickets are available head over to gamedevheroes.co and sign up to the mailing list.
