Competition finalists will be announced in December, and will have their games shown at the Games Venue during the Slamdance Film Festival.

The previous year's winners include Procedural Arts innovative conversation piece Façade winning the Grand Jury Sparky Award, while 2005 IGF Audience Award winner N from Metanet Software took home the Audience Award. The Student Physics Award went to the fighter Rumble Box by Insert Coin, while the Student Art Award was given to Cloud by USC's Cloud Team. Finally, the new PopCap Casual Games Award went to Odyssey by Liquid Dragon Studios.

More information on the event, including links to all of the 2006 finalists and winners, as well as entry forms and application information are available through the Slamdance website.
