Global search

"2016 was a year of growth for the IMGA," said IMGA CEO and founder Maarten Noyons.

"We launched competitions in Southeast Asia, the Middle East North Africa, and China. The line-up of this year’s IMGA Global campaign is unique, because it is the result of a worldwide search for quality, innovation and originality.

“The 159 nominees, including 29 unpublished games and 13 VR games, have been selected from nearly 3000 submissions, and unites our local competitions winners with those selected from our global call for entries. I personally recommend every single game in this line up."

Judging is currently underway to decide on the winners, who will be revealed on February 28th at the IMGA Global awards ceremony in San Francisco.

The public can also vote for the People’s Choice Award at the IMGA website.
