Jennifer Ann's Group has opened submissions for the third annual Life. Love. Game Design Contest, a yearly competition held to raise awareness of teen dating violence.
Entries must address the topic of relationship violence among teenagers, but must refrain from including any violent content. Submissions must be playable in a web browser using the Adobe Flash multimedia platform.
A panel of judges will evaluate each entry based on playability, innovation, ease of learning, and look and feel. A large portion of judging criteria focuses on educational quality and the effectiveness of each game's intended message.
This year's winning entry will receive a top prize of $2,500. Two runner-up contestants will receive $100 each. One randomly-chosen entry will be given a $100 door prize.
The deadline for submission is May 15, 2010. Prize winners will be announced on May 27, 2010. Last year's winning entries are playable for free at The Jennifer Ann Crecente Memorial Group's website
