The results are in for Round 1 of the graduate games code & art competitions, with our team of judges whittling down 600 entrants to just 160 qualifiers.
The Search For A Star & Rising Star student competitions are back for 2016, now open to both games coders and games artists. Take part in one of the biggest industry-supported game dev competitions in the UK, showcasing your work in front of leading studios and getting a boost towards a career in games.
This is a proud achievement for the whole Grads In Games team, and a huge honour to have the work we do recognised by an industry body such as TIGA. It’s fantastic to be appreciated for all of the efforts the team put into running the national Get In The Game careers tour and Search For A Star graduate showcase competitions.
Applications now open for the 2016 Search For A Star competitions, with game development opportunities for both coders and artists.
The award-nominated Grads In Games team are visiting over 60 universities across the UK in November to deliver free games careers advice & insight.
