Each year our volunteer steering committee – made up of members of the gaming industry and the tertiary education sector – will select a ‘Challenge’ theme. The new theme will be released in December of each year in order to allow time for educators to incorporate the theme into their planning for the coming year.
Entries into the competition must address the theme. Failing to do so will mean a loss of marks during judging.
Responses can be very literal or highly conceptual – the more creative the better! We’re looking for imaginative and exciting games that engage with, or address the theme.
To help students gather ideas, we will always put together a theme sheet containing some conceptual examples, questions and activities.
Ensure your students show the judges how they are addressing the theme in their GDD!
