The Front Line Awards honor the year's best development software for programming, art, audio, middleware, game engines, and networking. Game Developer will accept nominations from the game development community from now until early next week. While a great many considerations go into determining a winner, innovation is the real name of the game.
Products are nominated in all categories by the readers of Game Developer magazine and Gamasutra. Once all nominations are in, the editors of both publications will consult with Game Developer's advisory board to select finalists. Once the nominees have been chosen, readers will ultimately determine the winners in each category.
Nominations are open from October 8th through October 15th for all new products and new versions of products related to game development released between September 1, 2011, and August 31, 2012 (betas are not eligible).
Front Line Award finalists will be announced in the December 2012 issue and winners will be revealed in the January 2013 issue of Game Developer.
To nominate a product -- whether you're a satisfied user or a creator of that product -- please visit the 15th Annual Front Line Awards website and fill in the supplied form.
