Time is ticking away. Entries for the 2011 British Academy Scotland Awards close on Friday 19th of August at 17:00 BST.
The new GAMES category is open to every developer from indie-vidual developers, through to the largest studios. Format is not a consideration, allowing online, browser-based, mobile and casual titles, to compete head-to-head with console and PC titles.
The game does not need to have been ‘sold’. So games on Facebook, Kongregate, NewGrounds or even via the developer’s own website qualifies the game for entry. As do iOS, Android, Java, Flash… you name it.
BAFTA in Scotland has shown in the past that its focus is on the experience and the fun to be had with the game. In previous years Dynamo Games’ Championship Manager scooped the title from Realtime Worlds’ original Crackdown.
BAFTA is encouraging every developer to enter this year’s competition. Any game released between 31st August 2009 and 31st August 2011 can be submitted.
Jude McLaverty, Director of BAFTA In Scotland told us: Calling all Scottish game developers – you have four days left to enter your work into this year’s British Academy Scotland Awards. The game category is open to large and boutique developers alike and includes games across any and all platforms. Check out the BAFTA In Scotland website for all entry details. A BAFTA is THE one to win, so what have you got to lose?
Entries are £60 per entry for independents (which covers pretty much every single game developer in the country) and the ability to add BAFTA WINNING after a game name makes it well worth the entry price.
Please take 10 minutes and enter one of your games.
