Award ceremony on December 8 in Cologne
07/21/2022 - The German Developer Award (DEP) returns to the big stage. The honoring of the best games in the German-speaking region will take place on December 8, 2022 in Cologne. After two digital editions, it will once again be celebrated on site with an audience of nominees, laudators, guests of honor and representatives of the German games industry.
The German Developer Award is the oldest award in the games industry and has been presented annually since 2004. It honors outstanding achievements in the development of video and computer games from Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The interest group of the digital games industry in North Rhine-Westphalia had taken over the German Developer Award from Computec Media GmbH in April 2022. Thus, the prize will continue to be awarded in North Rhine-Westphalia and will be further developed in close cooperation with the state of NRW, the Film- und Medienstiftung NRW, the KölnBusiness Wirtschaftsförderung and game - Verband der deutschen Games-Branche.
Benedikt Grindel, spokesman for the board of games.nrw: "After a break due to corona, we are very pleased that the German Developer Award is returning to the big stage. The DEP is the industry's prize and together we want to develop the award further this year. We are looking forward to exciting submissions, jury work with around 150 representatives of the games industry and a glamorous award ceremony on December 8, 2022 in Cologne."
