2008 Game Developers Choice Awards: Nominate Now!

The eighth annual Game Developers Choice Awards currently has its nomination page open exclusively to Gamasutra-registered game professionals until Jan. 4th, with several new categories
Nominations are now being accepted for the 2008 Game Developers Choice Awards, the eighth annual presentation of the most prestigious honors in videogame development. Awards in ten categories, including two categories new to the awards this year, for Best Downloadable Game and Best Handheld Game, will be given at a ceremony produced by CMP’s Game Developers Conference (GDC) and presented by Gamasutra.com and Game Developer Magazine, on Wednesday, February 20, 2008 at GDC. The gala event, held in conjunction with the Independent Games Festival, will be hosted in the Esplanade Room in the South Hall of San Francisco’s Moscone Convention Center. The nomination ballot and further details about the Choice Awards are now available online, with the categories this year including Best Audio, Best Game Design, Best Technology, Best Visual Arts, Best Writing, Best Debut Game, Best Downloadable Game, Best Handheld Game, Innovation, and Game of the Year. “The Game Developers Choice Awards are built with the same care and editorial integrity as the Game Developers Conference itself, which means that we facilitate true and open peer based recognition of creative talent in games,” said Jamil Moledina, executive director of the Game Developers Conference. “Recently, games have become dramatically more integrated into pop culture given their diversity and portability, so this year the Choice Awards is evolving to include the well-deserving makers of the best downloadable and handheld games.” “One of the guiding principles behind Gamasutra and Game Developer has always been to give a voice to the game development community,” said Simon Carless, publisher and editorial director of Gamasutra.com and Game Developer magazine. “We are very excited to be extending that role this year by providing developers the opportunity to nominate and vote for the best games of the year.” To submit a nomination, please visit the official ballot page, or visit www.gamechoiceawards.com for details about the Game Developers Choice Awards. Voters must be game professionals who are registered (or register before voting) with a user account at Gamasutra.com.
