SXSW Gaming Awards

Deadline to submit your project is Friday, December 12, 2014!

Started in 2014, the SXSW Gaming Awards is our way of showing that we admire and respect the hard work it takes to harness the magic of creating games, the passion you have behind it and the persistent drive that keeps you going until the end. On this very same note, we implore our judges to have this very same viewpoint to evaluate unbiasedly. Every project should be celebrated and respected, but these are the best of the best that capture each category in its fullest meaning.
