The European Serious Games Competition aims to celebrate the best games for learning in Europe.

Organized by the Games and Learning Alliance as a friendly game contest, the awards are based on an analysis of the games by selected experts of the Serious Games.

In 2018, the European Serious Games Competition will reward serious games that present innovative human-computer interaction, including Mixed Reality, Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, Tangible Objects and games that use any kind of sensors and geolocation.

The competition results will be communicated to participants on November 12, 2018.

The competition will reward 3 games in each of the following categories:

  • Academy: Serious Games that have been designed and produced in a scientific environment
  • Business: Serious Games that have been designed and produced by a professional game studio

The winners will be invited to present their Serious Games at the GALA conference in Palermo. After the official award ceremony, the winners will have the opportunity to show their games during the “Play the City of Palermo” event in the great hall of the Palazzo Riso. This important event will be covered by the media and open to the general public, including the researchers and companies present at the GALA conference.

The jury is composed of established Serious Game designers and researchers.
