British Academy Games Awards 2019
12th April 2019
The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) is a world-leading independent arts charity.
In addition to its Awards ceremonies, BAFTA has a year-round, international programme of learning events and initiatives that offers unique access to some of the world’s most inspiring talent through workshops, masterclasses, scholarships, lectures and mentoring schemes in the UK, USA and Asia.
The British Academy Games Awards will take place on April 12th 2018, with a brand new category this year: the Game Beyond Entertainment award.
This new award will “recognise the best game that capitalises on the unique and maturing medium of games to deliver a transformational experience beyond pure entertainment – whether that is to raise awareness through empathy and emotional impact, to engage with real world problems, or to make the world a better place,” the official announcement said.
Applicants (for this category and all the other categories) have until December 8th to submit their entry on the BAFTA website. Games releases between December 16th and December 31st have a few extra days and can enter until December 15th.
