Submissions have opened for Games Britannia Live!, the public extension to the video game education festival running over the weekend of 28th-29th June 2014.
The event is hosted across several venues in the city of Sheffield, including the Winter Gardens, Tudor Square and Millennium Galleries. Up to 20,000 visitors are expected, making the festival an excellent opportunity for video game developers to show their latest work to a large audience.
Andy Payne, Chair of industry trade body Ukie and CEO of Mastertronic said, “It is fabulous to see Games Britannia Live! going from strength to strength and proving that there is both a supply and demand for games and technology from all over the country and an event that is crucially outside of London. This event is open to all and will give game makers an unrivalled and invaluable opportunity to put their creations in front of a huge audience”.
“Game Republic has always been an enthusiastic supporter of the Games Britannia festival,” said Jamie Sefton, Managing Director of the Yorkshire and the North of England games network Game Republic. “Now in addition to the educational strand, Games Britannia Live! presents a fantastic opportunity for the region’s talented games developers to showcase their work to the public.”
Closing dates for submissions will be 19th March 2014 and the titles appearing at the festival will be revealed soon after. Game developers and publishers interested in submitting their games should make their application at http://live.gamesbritannia.com.
