Due date for entries (or requests for extensions) is: 6pm Pacific, Monday, November 21, 2022. An additional late deadline of December 9, 2022 [may or may not be] approved with rate increases.
Credits are best submitted (a) early at time of entry or (b) by the official nominations announcement to avoid late fees. Credits submitted after the nominations announcement will be assessed a $200 late fee per category. Credits are extremely important to avoid delays in award production. If proper credits of individuals are not received by the late deadline, awards are FORFEIT. The name of at least one actual individual person is REQUIRED. Credits are limited to three persons per category, plus developer and publisher. A fourth person requires special approval.
Entrants are responsible for communicating with account representatives before nominations are announced to ensure acceptable credits.

Eligibility is for the calendar year, so any games entered by the deadline (but not released by December 31) will be applied to the year of actual release.
Upon entry, you will receive an automated email sales receipt AND invoice PDF document for your convenience. For companies that do not accept invoices without a PO number, the receipt can be submitted to your finance department as part of an internal purchase order request to generate a purchase order number. This number can be applied to the entry from your account login. Once applied, you will be able to download the final invoice which will reflect the PO number.
Any disqualifications found later can be offset by choosing a refund or a different creative/technical category.
Admin makes the final decision on all genre, franchise, and regional classifications; if a game’s title or content refers to any pre-existing related or unrelated franchise, character, or story, the presumption is that the game is a franchise.
When submitting an official entry, providing a gmail, yahoo, hotmail, outlook, or similar email is not recommended to ensure your entry is officially accepted.
