10th A MAZE. Award Show!

Out of 251 submissions from 48 countries, the selected 25 nominees are now competing in the 5 main categories. The 4th Humble New Talent Award will also be awarded to one of 5 additional nominees, which are selected not by one game, but their work and thoughts in general. Finally, everybody in the A MAZE./ SPACE can vote for their favorite exhibited work - the Audience Award will also be revealed!

The awards, now in their 10th year, present a total of 7.000€ in prizes to artists and game developers at the A MAZE. Awards Ceremony, which is one of the highlights of A MAZE./ Berlin.

The show will be moderated by Festival Director Thorsten S. Wiedemann and the categories will be presented by the final judges:
  • Adelle Lin (US)
  • Bleeptrack (DE)
  • Dhruv Jani (IN)
  • Lena NW (US)

We will also have a look at the results of the "A MAZE. Museum Online Game Jam: A World In Motion" in collaboration with the Leibniz Research Museums.
