13th IGF Dates Announced, You Prepared?

IGF is coming once again, now with some changes. New thing is that mobile games will be allowed to enter the main competition. They are also “expanding experimental focus” and while I don’t exactly know what that means in practise, it sounds like an indie thing.

Initial reaction could feel like “they’ll be spammed with mobile games and artistic non-games”, but my thinking is “this will make my victory taste even sweeter…”

Important dates for IGF 2011 are as follows:

June 28th, 2010 – Submissions are Open
October 18th, 2010 – Submission Deadline, Main Competition
November 1st, 2010 – Submission Deadline, Student Competition
January 3rd, 2011 – Finalists Announced, Main Competition
January 10, 2011 – Finalists Announced, Student Competition
February 28 – March 4, 2011 – Game Developers Conference 2011
February 28 – March 1, 2011 – Indie Games Summit @ GDC 2011
March 2 – March 4, 2011 – IGF Pavilion @ GDC 2011
March 2, 2011 – IGF Awards Ceremony (Winners Announced!)

I participated first time last year, and plan to participate this year as well.

What about you?
