Awards for future developers aged 13 to 16 and 0 to 25


Attention future developers: Soon there will be two awards for young people aged 13 to 16 (GamesTalente) and 0 to 25 (mb21):


Up to 15 July you can apply to GamesTalente with your project. Teams from 1 to 3 people aged between 13 and 16 can participate. There are almost no limits to your creativity in the type of project: writing, drawing, coding, prototyping, recording sounds, all that is allowed (only a few rules for the file format have to be respected).

All participants have the chance to win one of 50 gamescom tickets.

The top 50 participants with the best projects will be invited to the GamesTalente Academy in Berlin. There you can spend a week developing your own games with professionals from the creative and games industries, expanding your skills and learning new ones.

(The gamescom tickets and the places for the GamesTalente Academy will be awarded independently of each other.)

Further information, the terms of participation and the application form can be found here.




The German Multimedia Award mb21 is a Germany-wide competition in which the digital works of children, teenagers and young adults are to be honoured.

You can submit your projects for the mb21 until August 19th. The nature of your work is not so important. Whether you are a youtuber, blogger, game developer, website designer, coding expert or robotic fan, everyone who realises their creative ideas via digital media can participate.

To ensure that everyone has a fair chance, the prices will be awarded in different age groups:

  • Age group 1 (up to 10 years of age)
  • Age group 2 (11 to 15 years of age)
  • Age group 3 (16 to 20 years of age)
  • Age group 4 (21 to 25 years of age)

For groups, the average age of all participants applies.

In each age group three winners will be chosen, the winner of the main price receives 1.000€, the other two winners 500€.

In addition, there are three age-independent prizes: the annual theme, the group prize and media art. The winners of these special prices each receive €1,000.

Further Information, the terms of participation and the application form can be found here.
