AT A MAZE. / BERLIN 2018 - 7TH INTERNATIONAL GAMES AND PLAYFUL MEDIA FESTIVAL

A MAZE. AWARDS 2018 SUBMISSION - FROM November 1, 2017 TILL February 04, 2018

Submission link: https://2018.award.amaze-berlin.de

Since 2012 A MAZE. awards The Most Amazing Game. The winner is selected by an interdisciplinary, international and 100% independent jury. 2014 A MAZE. extended the award to three categories and the audience award. 2015 we’ve introduced our fourth category the "Other Dimensions Award” which is dedicated to play in virtual reality.

Now in respect of the forward-thinking and game changing development of the creators some of the 2012 award conditions and categories are not legit anymore. The categories are: “Most Amazing Game Award”, “Human Human Machine Award”, “Feature Award”, “Digital Moment Award”, “Collider Award” and “Audience Award”.

The most amazing trophy consists out of three independent elements: a pink silicone cube, a metal ball and a concrete socket. Thorsten S. Wiedemann, the director of A MAZE. explains: "The pink silicon stands for playfulness, the concrete socket for culture, and the embedded metal ball for connectivity."

An hand-picked international jury has the honorable task to select the winners of the following categories on-site.

The six categories for 2018 are:

Most Amazing Game Award (3000€)

This award goes to the best game overall - in terms of game play, art, innovation, music, story and interaction. This prize is dedicated to the masterpiece of the award selection, that shows a path we never went before.
