You read that right: there are only seven days until this year's celebration of the UK and European development community kicks off at the 2016 Develop Awards.
The winners of this year’s Awards will be revealed during this year’s awards ceremony at the Hilton Brighton Metropole on the evening of Wednesday, July 13th during the Develop: Brighton 2016 conference.
Among the more than 100 firms shortlisted for accolades are acclaimed creators CD Projekt Red, The Chinese Room, Sam Barlow, Remedy Entertainment, EA DICE, Ubisoft and Frictional Games, as well as the biggest tech and tool firms helping developers bring their visions to reality.
They will be jostling for recognition in categories such as New IP, Visual Arts, Audio Accomplishment, Use of Narrative, Micro Studio, In-House Studio, Use of a Licence and the coveted Studio of the Year prize.
Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima will receive this year’s Development Legend award, and will be handed the prize by previous Legend winner Mark Cerny, who served as system architect for the PS4.
This year's awards are supported by headline partner CV Bay, gold partners MoGI Group, Amiqus, Epic Games, Sumo Digital, Crytek, King, table gift partner OPM Jobs, exclusive drinks reception partner Keywords Studios, and event partner Develop: Brighton. Epic Games are also an award partner, as are Aardvark Swift.
