We are excited to announce the India Game Developer Conference Awards happening at The India Game Developer Conference (IGDC), India’s premier game industry conference!

Now in its 12th year, the conference is considered to be the most significant of such events held in South Asia. It plays a key role in developing the Indian gaming ecosystem - helping developers gain valuable insights, pick up new skills, as well as connect with publishers and investors that they otherwise may not have had access to.

The awards are the centerpiece of efforts made to recognize and promote talented Indian developers. Since the inception of the conference, the size of the Indian games industry has grown manifold. As a result we are expanding the awards categories to include the larger ecosystem, and look forward to adding additional categories over future editions of the IGDC.
