BAFTA Open Entries For The 2014 British Academy Games Awards

Published June 26, 2013 by |

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) has opened entries for the British Academy Games Awards in 2014.

The annual awards will consist of 16 categories celebrating the best in videogames, including the Best British Game award introduced last year, the BAFTA Ones To Watch Award — which celebrates emerging talent, and of course the prestigious Best Game award.

BAFTA also announced that this year’s entry period will be extended three months, finishing on 11th November 2013 instead of the previous date of 11th August.

Harvey Elliott, Chairman of BAFTA’s Games Committee, said:

“By extending the entry period for this year’s Awards, we’re allowing developers more time to campaign for their games and make sure that up-and-coming developers have every opportunity to showcase their work. Last year we saw an encouraging rise in the level of new talent entering their games, and we look forward to seeing this continue.”

In addition complimentary entry will be offered to publishers and developers for their first game, after last year’s successful introduction.
