After two years of virtual online events, the Game Republic Student Showcase returns as an in-person event on Tuesday 7th June at York St John University! The yearly event celebrates the best final-year and postgraduate projects of our Educational Partners, and is judged in various awards by games companies in the network.
The Game Republic Student Showcase has resulted in the creation of hundreds of placements and full-time jobs since its creation in 2008, helping graduates into long-term and successful careers in the Yorkshire and UK games industry.
This year’s event has 33 games projects from 10 universities and colleges including the University of Huddersfield, Leeds City College, Sheffield Hallam University, the University of Hull, York St John University and Staffordshire University.
The awards this year from our games company judges and sponsors are the Sumo Digital Award for Game Design, the Distinctive Games Award for Game Audio, the Rebellion North Award for Game Art and Animation, the Red Kite Games Award for Game Technology and a special award for Best Team.
The event is also sponsored by Barclays Games and Revolution Software. As well as the Showcase and the Award Prizegiving, there will be a special industry panel about “getting into the games industry” to help all the graduates at the event, which is in partnership with York St John University.
