Female Developers
Listen Up!

In 2017, the “Künstlerinnenpreis Nordrhein-Westfalen” will be awarded in the field of Game Design

The state of North Rhine-Westfalia decided to bring into focus the field of art and digitalization at this year’s award ceremony, specifically addressing female Game Designers. The games industry has become artistically experimental during the past ten years and highlights those developers who also concentrate on an individual and cultural expression rather than mere financial success.

The „Künstlerinnenpreis Nordrhein-Westfalen 2017“ supports female game designers who focus on an artistic approach in the realization of digital games. Beside the publicly advertised advancement award, endowed with 5.000 Euro, the grand prize, endowed with 10.000 Euro, is determined through an internal nomination procedure. As far as the advancement award is concerned, all female game designers that either work or live in North Rhine-Westphalia or were born here, are eligible.

The Cologne Game Lab / TH Köln contributes to the awarding of the prize as a competence partner. It will be awarded during the NEXT LEVEL – FESTIVAL FOR GAMES 2017 in the beginning of November at NRW-Forum in Düsseldorf. As usual, the organizer is „Frauenkulturbüro NRW“.
