Find out about the Game Concept Award

Reckon you've got a brilliant game idea up your sleeve? Spend hours lost in the world of your imagination? Love to draw or are simply brimming with story ideas? The YGD Game Concept Award is for you!

To enter this award, you can submit your own original game idea created by yourself or with a team of two other people. If your game idea is chosen as a winner, you’ll get to meet top gaming experts who’ll work with you to bring your game to life as you’ve never seen it before!

Entries will be judged on gameplay design, creativity and suitability for chosen games platform. It's not required to have good drawing skills to enter the competition, as the entry will be judged on the idea you present to us. 

Some key things you need to know:
