Music has always played an important role in computer games, setting up mood, providing rhythm and bringing tension. Behind every piece ofÂ game music is a composer, using his talent and skills to enhance our overall gaming experience.
Thatâ€™s why Game Industry Conference 2018 introducedÂ Epic Game Music AwardÂ â€“ an event aimed at identifying and awarding talented video game music makers.
Participants have to submit their work and provide their names and contact details via the form that will be available at the bottom of this page.
We are looking for game music tracks, that are epic and will allow for an orchestral arrangement with choir where required, composed for games released not more than a year ago.
Next, their work will be reviewed by the Epic Game Music Award jury.
Finally, the Winnerâ€™s track will be performed duringÂ GICÂ andÂ PGA, at theÂ Epic Game Music Concertâ€“Â a wonderful, symphonic music show planned for Friday, October 18th at Earth Hall (on the premises of PoznaĹ„ International Fair). There will be two concerts, one for general audience, while another one for VIPs, press, national delegations and GIC attendees. The orchestra will play Polish and international epic game tracks, both well known hits and premiere ones… possibly including your composition.
