Slamdance Game Competition

The 2007 Slamdance Guerilla Gamemaker Competition Call for Entries

The Slamdance Guerilla Gamemaker Competition exists to help aspiring game developers showcase their work. The festival seeks to aid developers through industry connections, peer interaction and national exposure. The 2006 Competition was the first time the Slamdance was able to offer awards for Student Designed Games. Those awards were a resounding success. Driven by burgeoning independent and student developers the 2006 Competition showed a wonderful increase in the quality of entries for the competition. Slamdance recognizes the need for a competition with integrity that concentrates on the art of game design and not just the bottom line.

All Independent and Student Gamemakers are invited to submit their original games before September 29, 2006. In November, the finalists will be announced on Slamdance's website. The finalists will be invited to the 2007 Slamdance Guerilla Gamemaker Competition in Park City to showcase their games to the public and meet other independent designers and industry professionals.

I'm actually considering entering at least the new form interactive fiction, as it later states "Innovative and unusual formats, such as interactive fiction and drama, are encouraged to apply" on the page. I don't know if I'll have enough done with any of the 2D games by the end of the summer for them to be competitive.
