BAFTA Calls For ‘Breakthrough Brits’ Applications
The British Academy of Film and Television Arts are now welcoming applications and industry nominations for the BAFTA Breakthrough Brit awards.
The initiative celebrates and supports the future stars of UK film, television and, most importantly for us, games.
Following the success of last years initiative, a new panel of industry professional will select up to twenty newcomers, who will receive career guidance and mentoring, alongside access to upcoming BAFTA events.
The winner of the inaugural Breakthrough Brit in 2013, game developer Dan Pearce, received a nomination for Best Debut Game at this year’s British Academy Game Awards.
“Since becoming a BAFTA Breakthrough Brit, I have released two games. Both have been helped by the increased credibility granted by Breakthrough Brits. The initiative also helped immensely in setting up contact between me and the people who were integral to getting one of those games out.”
Applications for the awards must be submitted online by 10am on Monday 9th June 2014.
