BAFTA 2004 GAMES AWARDS CALL FOR ENTRIES START

Awards to recognise the best in cutting edge gaming

1 September, 2004

The call for entries for the prestigious BAFTA Game Awards, started today. For the second year the Game Awards will be held in early March 2005. This is the chance for the creators of the most exciting, involving and progressive gaming experiences across the world to have their work recognised with the coveted BAFTA mask.

Last year's big winner with five BAFTAs at the Games Awards was Grand Theft Auto Vice City, but this year sees the release of some of the most anticipated titles of all time, which should make for the most hotly contested Game Awards ever.

The BAFTA Games Awards reward the artists, educators and entertainers who are pushing the boundaries and bringing the media we engage with alive. Categories will range from sporting, racing PS2, Xbox to mobile gaming.
