GDC announces 'Best of Play' award program for emerging indie gamers
The annual Game Developer's Conference fast approaches,and one of the coolest things about it is the chance for indie developers to mingle with their peers and get exposure for their work. This year, that work will be more formally recognized with the introduction of the 'Best In Play' awards program.
"For the new 'Best in Play' award program, all GDC Play exhibitors will be judged on their in-development or complete games by a panel of veteran GDC organizers and Gamasutra editors. The top 8 will be named 'Best in Play' winners, and all 8 winners will receive 2 All Access Passes to Game Developers Conference 2014."
If you're an independent developer, there is still time to get your spot on the floor to show off your work. It's a really low-cost way to get great exposure, and the networking opportunities alone are worth the price of admission.
GDC 2013 kicks off on March 25th and runs through the 29th in San Francisco.
