Vote: the Golden Pineapple Award Nominees are here

The Golden Pineapple Awards is a student contest for designing learning games, focused on developing awareness among young game designers and creative people and companies of the potential of games as learning material. Originally starting as an educational game design course created by Professor Maja & Paul Pivec, the concept has taught over 300 information design students at the University of Applied Sciences Joanneum in Austria.

The International Golden Pineapple Award™  is presented in the following categories: the most innovative or outstanding game design or graphical environment, the best learning or educational concept, the highest commercial marketing potential, and the best concept for Social Inclusion. The final award is the People’s Choice, where the public can vote online for any of the nominated concepts.

Among the nominees there are two projects developed at the Engage Learning Game Design Summer School hosted by TAMK Degree Programme in Media earlier this autumn:
  • Sorting Rush by Trinary Logic, team: Jamie Myland, Eulalia Guiu, Anuja Dharmaratne
  • Cyber Hero by SynapsisOne, team Eevi Korhonen, Erik Ortman, Kenneth Swedlund
