The Game Awards 2018 opens submissions for Student Competition

Judging panel once again includes industry veterans Todd Howard, Hideo Kojima, and Vince Zampella

The Game Awards' Student Game Award submissions is now open.

As a supporter of video games in all of their forms, the Student Game Award recognises development talent at the high school, collegiate and university levels worldwide.

The competition will be judged by an elite group of industry veterans:

  • Hideo Kojima (Director, Kojima Productions)
  • Todd Howard (Executive Producer & Director, Bethesda Game Studios)
  • Jenova Chen (Co-Founder/Creative Director, thatgamecompany)
  • Megan Ellison (Founder/CEO, Annapurna Pictures) & Annapurna Interactive
  • Maja Moldenhauer (Artist & Producer, StudioMDHR)
  • Vince Zampella (CEO, Respawn Entertainment)

The Student Game Award will identify five nominees to attend The Game Awards in Los Angeles on December 6, and one winner will be selected from the group to be honored live during The Game Awards broadcast.

Last year's winners were from Swinburne University in Australia, who developed stylised platformer Level Squared.

Student groups looking to submit their project to the Student Game Award can do so at Submissions close on October 17 at 5 PM PT and final nominees will be announced on November 13.
