BALTIC SEA GAMES AWARD: The Baltic Sea Games Award was created to enhance the visibility of the game industry of the Baltic Sea Region (BSR). The Award is targeted at start-ups in the BSR. Please note that this is not a public competition. Start-ups can only join the competition after being selected by their respective country curator. Please do not share this link.

In the course of the award procedure, start-ups will first enter an online competition, with the chance of winning in one of four categories (see “Categories” below). After the winners have been selected, they will be invited to the Baltic Sea Games Award ceremony on 16 November 2019 at the video gaming event “GameOn” (see “Location” below). At this event, the winners will be pitching their games and business plans in front of a group of investors/mentors. Whoever the investors/mentors deem to be the most worthy, will ultimately receive the award “Best BSR Start-up Game” and the "Grand Prix" (see below).

We are proud to honour the best start-up games in the Baltic Sea Region and look forward to your participation!
