Welcome to the TIGA UK Games Education Awards 2023

Welcome to the TIGA UK Games Education Awards 2023. Our Awards are unique: they recognise excellence in learners and graduates, teaching and research, colleges and universities.  

We have a ‘baker’s dozen’ of awards that give students, lecturers and education providers a chance to shine.

Entry is free for TIGA members. Just complete the super easy online entry form (submitting a logo, photograph and game and video footage where required) and ensure you read and sign the terms and conditions.

The closing date for entries is 23.59 on Friday 2nd June 2023. After this date our judging panel will be judging and scoring every single entry that has been received. The shortlist of highest scoring entries will be announced in June with the winners of each category being revealed at the TIGA UK Games Education Awards Ceremony which will be delivered virtually in the summer of 2023.
