Application phase underway for Creative Gaming Award

Two categories in Hamburg's Creative Gaming Awards open to European game developers

European developers of games have until July 15, 2017 to submit their applications for the 3rd Creative Gaming Awards on November 4, 2017 as part of the PLAY – Creative Gaming Festivals. “The Creative Gaming Award targets independent developers. The focus is on particularly innovative ideas for games that give players an opportunity to interact creatively with the game,“ said Valentina Birke, curator of the exhibition and co-ordinator of the Creative Gaming Awards.

Creative Gaming Awards to be presented in two categories

The “Most Creative Game“ category is for experienced developers, who have already published one or more games. New developers can apply in the “Most Innovative Newcomer Game“ category which accepts prototypes, as well as alpha or beta versions of games. The winners stand to gain a one-year partnership with experienced developers who will advise on projects ranging from special games, transmedia, new means of interaction or visual breakthroughs. Birke added: “We are looking forward to new, innovative and creative entries.”
