The 2020 Freeplay Awards are now open for submissions. However, we’ve made the difficult decision to host this year’s Awards Ceremony online. The deadline for submissions is Sunday 5th April, 11:59 PM (AEST).
We’re delighted to welcome our new board members; a radiant mix of individuals, some steeped in Australian games and others -in typical Freeplay fashion- completely new to it, with a rich practice in other disciplines. Jason Imms, Travis Jordan, Georgia Symons, Alice Pryor, Doug Wilson – welcome!
After having announced our festival keynotes and dates (May 7-12), we’re now thrilled to announce that our 2019 Freeplay Awards are now open for submissions!
We’re thrilled to announce that this year’s festival dates are May 7th–12th. Our theme this year is INTROSPECTION, and our international keynote speakers are the wonderful Hannah Nicklin & Richard Lemarchand. We have a bunch more international speakers to announce soon, so watch this space!
We’re super excited to announce that Freeplay is a program partner for the delightful event Showtime Night Market – a collaboration between Testing Grounds and The Rose Street Artists’ Market, who’ll bring you two night markets in summer 2019!
The Freeplay Independent Games Festival is seeking nominations for its Board of Directors. We seek passionate candidates to play a role in the stewardship and development of the Freeplay Organisation, and our Independent Games Festival and events.
After several months of preparation and hard work, the Freeplay team is proud to reveal 2018’s keynotes and theme! We’re thrilled to announce that 2018’s theme is INTERSECTIONS, and our international keynote speakers are Auriea Harvey and Michaël Samyn from Tale of Tales, and curator of Playful Arts Festival, Zuraida Buter.
We have some sweet news to share with you really soon, but before we do we wanted to introduce you to our fantastic 2018 Programme Committee. Built up of creatives from intersecting disciplines, these lovely folks will help shape the series of talks and panels that will take place at Freeplay this year, ensuring the discussions and conversations are relevant to contemporary games culture discourse.
