CGDA is Looking for China’s Best Game Producers

While the heated ChinaJoy fades out with the departure of summer, China Game Developers Award (CGDA) is stepping onto the stage. Which team will be China’s best gamer producer of the year? Will the vacant title of the Best Creative Award in 2009 see its owner this year? Winners of the 14 awards representing the highest level of game development capability in China are going to be announced. Will Kingsoft, the biggest winner of CGDA 2009 remain competitive? The answers to all the questions will be revealed at the CGDA award ceremony on November 19.

In 2009, the first CGDA was co-organized by the ChinaJoy Organizing Committee and China International Copyright Expo Organizing Committee. It was China’s first competition committed to reserving, selecting and awarding China’s premier game producers and teams. The competition was supported by the General Administration of Press and Publication, the Ministry of Education, the National Copyright Administration, the Beijing Municipal Government and the CCPIT. In less than 50 days, the competition received over 100 pieces of professional works from companies and over 2000 pieces of works from various training schools, colleges and individual candidates. At last, the panel of over 30 professional judges decided individual and team winners for 13 out of the total of 14 awards.

Presenting Professional Award

Zhu Qi, President of Perfect World, said after the company’s Celestial Destroyer team won an award, “CGDA brought a large number of premier Chinese online game developing teams together, and provided valuable exchange opportunities for all the participants including Perfect World. The improvement of production will be a great drive for the development of the entire game industry as well as enhance the companies’ capabilities. Perfect World has realized quite early that only with enhanced capabilities can the companies present a popular online game.”

Apart from professionals, many promising non-professional candidates attracted attention from the game companies through last year’s CGDA, and a proportion of the training school and college winners have been employed by premier game companies.

CGDA 2010 has been unveiled, opening the game for the top honor of Chinese game producers. Are you ready?
