Student Showcase 2011

Game Republic Student Showcase 2011

The fourth annual Student Showcase 2011 was held at Leeds Metropolitan University, Headingley Campus on Tuesday 24th May 2011 – and was a 100% privately funded and sponsored event. The Showcase was a fantastic opportunity for more than 60 final-year and postgraduate games course students from the Educational Partners of Game Republic, to display their best work to the biggest games developers in the region, and hopefully win awards. Previous awards have led to work placements for more than a dozen winners and full-time employment for three graduates.

Prizes were awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in four categories – and here are the winners!

1st: Acorn of Aneush, 4TW7 team, University of Huddersfield
