Seems like the summer of game design competition announcements, but if you're a game designer/developer, especially one interested in Web games, there are plenty of opportunities available to earn recognition and win fabulous prizes for your efforts.
Not the least of which (that's me trying to say this is pretty big!) is the Independent Games Festival (IGF) held each year at the Game Developers Conference (GDC). The first deadline to submit entries for next year's competition is coming up: September 8th. Among the various categories offered is a Best Web Game prize of $2,500 that is up for grabs.
So head on over to the IGF website and find out what you need to do to enter. Hey, you never know, right?
Cheers to Simon over at Gamasutra for the heads-up about the approaching deadline. =)
