We would like to extend our acknowledgments to the Indigenous people from countries overseas & recognise their strength, wisdom and creativity.

Welcome to the AGDAs

The AGDAs 2022 will be held on Wednesday the 5th October from 7pm AEDT onwards.

The Australian Game Developer Awards (AGDAs) are a national event celebrating outstanding games and individual achievements by Australian game developers. This year, the AGDAs enter their 20th year of uplifting and encouraging local talent.

Spanning 13 game categories as well as 4 personal and studio awards, the AGDAs seek to elevate and celebrate our diverse and talented local industry.

As of 2020, The AGDAs have been run by the Interactive Games and Entertainment Association (IGEA) – the peak industry association representing the voice of Australian and New Zealand companies in the computer and video games industry.
