“Grads in Games run two exciting competitions for students who are aspiring to enter the gaming industry. Entrants pick a speciality from code, character art, environmental art, animation, and new this year – VFX, and experience a three-stage process designed by members of the industry to mimic a standard recruitment process.

What’s up for grabs?

  • A chance to win a job or internship opportunity with leading studios.
  • Receive personal feedback on your work and advice from industry programmers, artists and animators.
  • Many entrants use the sought-after skills and portfolios they develop to secure a job in the games industry upon graduation.
  • Experience an interview panel in front of members of the games’ industry, and receive tailored feedback to improve your employability.

The competitions:

  • Search For A Star – Final year or graduate games programmers, 3D artists, animators & VFX artists.
  • Rising Star – Students who are not yet in their final year of study who are interested in programming, 3D art, animation or VFX.

This year we’re working with our studio partners Playground Games, Sumo Digital, Boss Alien & nDreams alongside our development partners Furious Bee, Edge Case Games & GaaSworks.
