A new addition to the 2014 schedule, the inaugural SXSW Gaming Awards takes place on the evening of Saturday, March 8 at Dell Hall in the Long Center for the Performing Arts. The Long Center is immediately adjacent to the Palmer Events Center, home of the three-day SXSW Gaming Expo.
The 2014 SXSW Gaming Awards celebrate the amazing achievements in games from the previous year (January 1, 2013 through December 31, 2013). This event also gives fans a chance to kick back and have some fun with the industry leaders who create the games we all enjoy.

By comparison, if you are an independent developer, then you are encouraged to submit your innovative and creative projects for the SXSW Gamer’s Voice Award. The top 10 SXSW Gamer’s Voice nominees selected by SXSW Gaming staff will be granted free space in the Indie Showcase on the 2014 SXSW Gaming Expo floor. Attendees will have a chance to demo their games and vote for their favorite. The winner will take home the first-ever SXSW Gamer’s Voice Award at the Gaming Awards show.

We hope you are as excited as we are about this cool new addition to the SXSW Gaming family, and we hope you will join us for our inaugural year! Remember that the SXSW Gaming Awards are free and open to the public, although SXSW badgeholders will have priority seating for this full-filled evening at the Long Center.
