The Fourth Annual I/ITSEC Serious Games Showcase & Challenge Call for Serious Games Entries;

November 30 – December 3, 2009, Orlando, Florida, USA

Serious Game developers are invited to submit their original PC-based serious game to the Fourth Annual I/ITSEC Serious Games Showcase & Challenge. The goal of the Serious Games Showcase & Challenge is to promote innovative game-based solutions to training problems.

Finalists in the Serious Game Showcase & Challenge will be selected by a panel of serious games leaders in the military, industry, and academic fields, and will be invited to showcase their serious game at I/ITSEC 2009, where over 17,000 attendees will view and vote on each of the finalists.

The Challenge is open to a wide range of contestants; categories include student, government, and business. Prizes will be awarded to top contestants in those categories. Entered games can include modifications to existing games and virtual worlds as well as original development.

All entries will be judged in four primary areas: Use of Gaming Characteristics, Solution to a Stated Problem; Technical Quality; and Playability/Usability. For the purpose of the Challenge, entries will be considered a serious game if they have gaming attributes, involve an assigned challenge, and employ some form of positive and/or negative reward system.

The FTP Site is now On-Line and ready to accept Serious Games Submissions. Please visit for all required Submission Paperwork.

Once the paperwork is submitted, a private FTP login will be emailed for your Serious Games entry. The FTP server will be available from August 15 through September 30th, 2009.
