Held every year, the BIG Festival awards ceremony includes 19 different categories, in which independent games from all over the world seek not only the coveted trophies of the ceremony, but also cash prizes and incentives for their projects. Among the festival's awards categories are the most sought after, such as Best Game and Best Brazilian Game, which evaluate projects as a whole, as well as technical awards such as Best Sound, Best Narrative, Best Gameplay and others.

For entries, games from any platform, console or media are accepted, as long as the projects are owned by the competitor or there is written authorization from the game owner. More information about how to register, criteria and requirements can be found on the BIG Festival website.
