Awesome news to all student game developers! We've once again partnering with the awesome folks at Autodesk to bring back Student Game Award for GDWC 2022! The submissions are now open!

Student Game Award '22!
This year the Student Game Award is again open for student-developed projects on all digital platforms. You don't have to specifically be studying game development, all students are welcome as long as you have a project to show us.

The projects must be non-commercial and all kinds of projects are welcome from 2D to 3D and whatever else you may come up. Games must be developed by a team of current or recently graduated students. Due to the increased wave and interest towards self-studying and online-learning, this year we're also accepting first-time game projects from self-studying developers.

Five best teams are in Student Game Award are rewarded with fame and visibility via Exclusive Interviews in Autodesk AREA, and some awesome Autodesk swag.

The Winning team will also get top-of-the-line tools in the form of Autodesk Licenses, and get some in-depth industry knowledge in the form of an executive coaching session.
