The organizers of the 2007 Independent Games Festival are reminding interested parties that the deadline for entering the 2007 IGF Student Showcase competition is November 10th, 2006 at 11:59pm PDT. In the Student category, there will be 10 'Student Showcase' winners for the leading games ($500 travel stipend) announced in January 2007, all of whom will exhibit on the IGF Pavilion at Game Developers Conference in San Francisco in March 2007. In addition, for the first time this year, an overall 'Best Student Game' ($2,500 cash prize) will be awarded at the IGF Awards during GDC. Previous years have seen important student honorees such as Narbacular Drop (for which the concept was subsequently turned into Valve's Portal, which will appear on PC and next-gen consoles in 2007), as well as Cloud, an innovative student game from some of the personnel now recruited to make PS3 downloadable game fl0w. In its other competitions, the 2007 IGF Competition (created by the CMP Game Group, as is Gamasutra.com) garnered a record 141 entries vying for the $20,000 Seumas McNally Grand Prize, and the Modding Competition has attracted over 35 high-quality entries, including notable mods such as DungeonDoom for Doom 3. Those interested in entering the 2007 IGF Student Showcase can visit the IGF's submission site for more guidelines and specifics about the competition.
