The TIGA UK Games Education Awards 2024 is a unique opportunity to recognise outstanding students, brilliant lecturers and showcase your institution’s dedication to games education. The deadline for entries is June 3rd, so here’s everything you need to know about making a nomination…

Be Prepared!

Entry is free for TIGA members.

All nominations must be submitted by lecturers from TIGA member universities and colleges – students are not permitted to submit entries themselves.

Only universities and FE colleges that are members of TIGA can enter, and some categories are reserved for courses that have been accredited by TIGA.

You can enter multiple categories.

Simply complete the super easy online entry form (submitting 300 words on why you should win, a logo, photograph and game and video footage where required) and ensure you read and sign the terms and conditions.
