An interesting idea. Not sure how many 11-16 year olds are on this forum…
The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) is launching BAFTA Young Game Designers 2012, a competition that aims to inspire the game designers and game-makers of the future by giving young people the chance to design and create their own video game and develop it with industry professionals.
The competition is open to 11-16 year olds and has attracted hundreds of entries from across the UK every year since it began in 2010. This year, for the first time, young people have two ways to enter:
The Concept Award is for those who have an idea for a new game, and can describe the characters, the world of the game, and how it will be played.
The Game-making Award, presented by Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE), will suit young people who want to make their own games using game-making software or programming languages. This is their chance to show off their technical skills as well as their creativity.

Depends on time of year…when work experience or CAO deadlines are coming up it jumps.
I guess this competition is for UK citizens only?
