Deadline for Entries is now Midnight on Monday 30th September 2013

Due to popular demand, TIGA, the trade association representing the UK games industry, has today extended the entry deadline for its second annual industry awards. The TIGA Awards are especially designed to celebrate the best in creativity, technological innovation and games business at all levels and in all sectors of the UK games industry. The 2012 awards were a roaring success, with more than 2000 votes cast by the developer community for the hotly contested ‘Game of The Year’ category.

 The purpose of the TIGA Awards is to reward and share the hard work and achievements of everyone that contributes to Britain’s games business, which is why five games categories feature separate awards for small and larger studios, and entry is free for members and non-members alike.

TIGA’s ‘Business of Games’ categories are for members only, and are specifically designed to recognise the great work done by organisations from the wider ecosystem, from educators and tech developers to publishers and accountants.

The TIGA Games Industry 2013 awards ceremony will take place on the evening of November 6, at Pinewood Studios. TIGA's new Game Developer Conference will also be held at Pinewood during the day, in Theatre Seven, the largest preview theatre in the UK.

Key partners for this year’s awards are BlackBerry, who will once again be sponsoring the event, as will nDreams. TIGA’s chosen charity partner for the 2013 awards is SpecialEffect, a wonderful organisation dedicated to using videogames and technology to enhance the quality of life of people with disabilities.

There are 25 categories in total, with the games categories open to the entire industry. The special awards categories will once again include ‘Game of the Year’, chosen by the UK’s development community through a public vote, and ‘Person of the Year’. Please note the special awards categories are not enterable.
