Dutch Competition

Sources: Game Maker Community

Utrecht University in the Netherlands is organizing a game creation competition under the name Creative Game Challenge. It is a competition for all students in highschool (VWO, HAVO, VMBO) in the Netherlands and it runs the whole year. The deadline for submitting games is April 7 and the prize ceremony will take place at the end of June. The theme of the competition is Beasts and you must use Game Maker to create your game. The total price money is 10.000 Euro, divided over some 10 prizes, so there is a lot to win.

So if you are living in the Netherlands and going to highschool you are strongly recommended to participate in this competition. For more information, the precise rules and prizes, and to register for the competition, go to the Creative Game Challenge website (in Dutch).

Utrecht University is organizing this competition because from the coming year on it will offer a track on Game Technology with the Computer Science bachelor. If you are interested in studying Game Technology at a University in the Netherlands, you can find more information at www.gametechnologie.nl (in Dutch).

Unfortunately all team members must be students at Dutch schools. The goal of the university with this competition is to get more people in the Netherlands interested in Computer Science. So that is the target audience.
