IGEA acknowledges and pays respect to the past and present Traditional Custodians and Elders of this land and the continuation of cultural, spiritual and educational practices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

IGEA recognises that our work also extends across to the lands of Aotearoa, and recognise the strength, wisdom and creativity of the Māori and the Moriori people.

We extend our respects to all Indigenous people of countries where our members and stakeholders live and work.


Welcome to the AGDAs

The Australian Game Developer Awards (AGDAs) is the Australian games industry’s night of nights where we join together and celebrate the outstanding games and individual achievements of the Australian game development community.

Spanning 13 game awards, 4 personal and studio awards, and a bespoke award category, the AGDAs seek to elevate and celebrate across our diverse and talented local industry.

The AGDAs takes place at The Forum Melbourne, a stunning and iconic live music venue located at 154 Flinders Street, Melbourne.

The event is fully catered with delicious food and drinks served to you by the friendly staff of The Forum.

The dress code is Cocktail Attire, so this is your chance to go all out and capture your Red Carpet moment!

For those who can’t join us in person, the entire ceremony is streamed live and recorded.
