Also, an advancement prize will be given out to distinguish the most innovative project in each of the following categories:

Those eligible are game developers, game publishers, publishing companies, freelance workers, and young new talent such as students or trainees, who create, release, or distribute computer or video games and who have their headquarters and / or residence in an EU member state.

We want the best games at the award ceremony during November 2009 in Frankfurt, Germany. Along with the European Commission, the City of Frankfurt will hand out the award for the most innovative game – and you could be the winner! All you need to do is enter the competition at Hurry, act fast the deadline to enter is coming up soon on September 25, 2009.

We are sorry about that but we must prepare something for each of the judges in a nondigital format. That is why we are not accepting the applicantions by way of the internet. If we could accept them over the internet, we would.

 Grin Touché, that is a good observation. I can't get things changed this year, but maybe next year we will have something more up to date and efficient technology wise.

There seems to be a certain tension between on the one hand saying that the competition is open to freelancers and students and on the other hand apparently requiring a company to submit the entry ("The entry should be in English and include: ... Complete name and address of the submitting company").

I apologize for any inconvenience the wording may have caused, but we are accepting applications from any freelancer or student. Instead of giving a company name and address, give your own address including a title of either freelancer or student to distinguish yourself. It will not be a problem to do either of these things. Once again, sorry for the confusion.

Is there any way that I could get more information about the judges?

Actually we will be puting up pdf files of the judges very soon, hopefully within the week. They will include a photo and a short biography of their career. If you have anymore questions please ask.
