Zoo Entertainment subsidiary indiePub will host the second Independent Propeller Awards at the South by Southwest Interactive festival in 2012.
indiePub will provide $50,000 in cash prizes, including $25,000 for the Grand Prize winner and $5,000 for each of the five individual categories: Best Art, Best Audio, Best Design, Technical Excellence and Mobile Game.
The winning games will be exhibited at South by Southwest Interactive's ScreenBurn Arcade booth - which is free and open to the public - from March 9 to March 11.
"SXSW is where people take notice of up-and-comers across all mediums, so we're proud to keep this pattern going across the world of video games by partnering with indiePub for the 2012 Independent Propeller Awards," said ScreenBurn account executive Justin Burnham.
"With their history of helping raw talent refine their skills to create outstanding original games, indiePub is a natural partner to help develop this within SXSW Interactive."
Developers can submit a game between November 15 and December 15, 2011, through indiePub.com.
