BAFTA trials Young Game Designer comp

Scheme for 11-16 year olds currently being piloted; possible national rollout next year

BAFTA has revealed that it has been working on a Young Game Designer scheme, currently being piloted in conjunction with the organisation's Game Committee and the Paddington Academy, which it hopes to extend into a national competition next year.

The idea follows the success of the Me and My Movie competition, which runs in association with CBBC, and if the pilot is successful will be launched at the Video Game Awards in March next year.

The aim, according to an email from BAFTA, is to "inspire 11-16 year olds to explore the creative possibilities and career potential of videogames," with winners being announced at the Children's Awards next November.
