The Independent Games Festival has opened entries for its 19th annual competition.
The awards ceremony recognises talent in indie games from around the world on all platforms in a variety of categories, including excellence in design, narrative, art, and audio.
New to this year's competition is the alt.ctrl.GDC Award, which will celebrate games with unique controllers built especially for one game.
The deadline for submissions is October 24, with finalists announced in January 2017, and the awards ceremony to be held on March 1 2017.
While the IGF has typically been an arena for PC indies, mobile games have been receiving more accolades in recent years, including narrative adventures 80 Days and Her Story.
Developers can submit their games through the IGF's official website.
