Today, 30th September 2015, is the closing date for the presentation of projects for AzPlay, the 6th International Festival of Independent Games.
The projects opt for the 5 awards of 5000 euros each established by the Competition: best original idea, best creative design, best sound-music, best playability and best Basque videogame.
From now on, a jury made up of leading figures from the world of “Indie” videogames, specialized media, industry and academics will judge these videogames, and the list of finalists will be published on 31st October. The final decision will be announced at the Award Gala to be held at Azkuna Zentroa Auditorium on 27th November.
AzPlay (previously hóPLAY) has become consolidated as the international reference for the promotion of new projects, awarding prizes every year to the most original, creative and innovative independent videogames of the moment. Over 350 projects from the 5 continents have been received during these 5 years and over 150,000 euros in prize money distributed.
This year, AzPlay will be taking place in the Bilbao Bizkaia Design Week which will be held at the end of November, and will be the “Indie” section of the Fun&Serious Game Festival, to complement this event with international fame.
