Gioteck Search for Visionary Gamers to Design the Future

Gioteck, the fastest growing console peripherals brand in Europe, launches a revolutionary gaming competition which will not only win you a wad of cash and the opportunity to start a career in the gaming industry, but also the chance to make a mark in gaming history and shape the future of the gaming world!

The biggest event in the gaming calendar, The Golden Joystick Awards, Design Challenge 2013 announced that its search for the next visionary gaming peripheral designer is now on.

Budding designers are challenged to submit initial 2D concept designs for their vision of what will drive the next generation of gaming peripherals. The best 12 will be taken forward to a live ‘Dragon’s Den’ style pitch where entrants will have the opportunity of a lifetime, presenting their ideas to a panel of leading industry experts and the chance to win the ultimate prize for any gaming enthusiast.

With a prize package worth up to £500,000, the winner will receive a 12 month paid apprenticeship with Gioteck’s development team, plus the opportunity to put their own gaming design concept into mass production, earning royalties from sales as well as a MacBook Pro and CAD software.

As an added bonus, the Gioteck Design Challenge winner will be flown out to Hong Kong then on to China on a fascinating trip to see the manufacturing process of Gioteck products at a major electronics factory.

Andy Green Creative Director at Gioteck comments: “The Gioteck product range is designed by gamers for gamers. We have launched the Design Challenge competition to give gaming enthusiasts an opportunity to showcase their ideas for the future to some of the leading figures in the industry in a bid to drive the industry into unchartered territory’s and take gaming to a whole new level.

“We believe the next pioneering idea will come from a gamer and are looking forward to working alongside one winner to put their vision into production.

“All you need to enter is an idea, and that idea could land you ultimate life-changing gaming prize!”

The whole process will be filmed to create a mini-series for Future TV, currently code named ‘The Apprentices Den’, showcasing the designers and their ideas to the gaming community and beyond.

The recruitment drive is now on and budding designers have until 31st December to fill out the online application form and register for the competition at www.gioteck.com/designchallenge
