Trondheim. March. Join.


About us

So what exactly is NGA?

Norwegian Game Awards is an annual game development contest for students. You, your friends or your class can sign up and develop a game!

Travel to Trondheim, meet all the other contestants and hear from established game development studios on our networking event the first evening. 

This is a day of learning and case-solving followed up by social events for the contestants in the evening.

Day two of NGA is the Game Expo. All the contestants have their own stand, and everyone can go around trying out all the games, as well as other fun activities, and food of course.

The day is topped of by the awards ceremony, where seven different prices are awarded to the best contestants! More about the awards on our "Participants"-page.​
