Event Description

Every July, Develop hosts the biggest awards night on the game development industry calendar with over 500 people attending representing companies from around the world.

Now in their tenth year, the Develop Industry Excellence Awards once again take place in Brighton at the Hilton Metropole Hotel, on the evening of July 11th.

While there are a number of awards in this industry, the Develop Awards are the only peer-voted prizes for UK and European games developers which focus purely on creativity, teamwork, and inspiring innovation. Not marketing. Not hype.

20 awards are up for grabs for studios across Europe, with the core awards like Independent Studio, Development Legend and New IP still part of the mix. This year we also introduce two new awards categories: Narrative Design and Use of Online.

WHEN DO THE AWARDS TAKE PLACE?

The Develop Industry Excellence Awards 2012 takes place on on July 11th at the Hilton Brighton Metropole Hotel.

WHEN DO THE AWARDS TAKE PLACE?

The Develop Industry Excellence Awards take place on Wednesday, July 11th, 2012 at the Hilton Brighton Metropole Hotel.

HOW CAN MY COMPANY ENTER?

This one’s simple. All you need to do is send a short pitch, either as a Word document or plain text email, to Develop’s editor-in-chief atmichael.french@intentmedia.co.uk. Give us a bit of history and highlight your company’s key achievements ­in the last year – and don’t forget tell us what awards you want to be considered for. You don’t need to go into masses of detail, as we only need an overview and a run through of what your key achievements/recent releases are. Be brief; it’s easier for you, and for us. Remember, we know the industry very well and will have almost definitely heard of you. You’re also actively invited to lobby for other companies across the games industry – be it publishing partners, your favourite services or outsourcing outfits, and the studios that you admire. Lobbying isn’t voting, so there is no need to get all of your partners to put your name forward without any detail.

The deadline for lobbying is April 18th.

I WANT TO COME ALONG! HOW CAN I ATTEND THE AWARDS?

Given the increased pressures on developers’ wallets and studio budgets in recent years we’ve actually dropped the prices – how many award events can say that?

Early bird prices, for those tickets or tables booked on or before June 8th, are: Gold Table of 10 – £1,975 + VAT; Standard Table of 10 – £1,750 + VAT; and Single Seats – £195 + VAT.

After June 8th the prices change to:
Gold Table of 10 – £2675 + VAT; Standard Table of 10 – £2350 + VAT; and Single Seats – £235 + VAT.
