The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) is hosting free workshops around the UK to inspire young people to consider a career in games. The workshops, which began in Glasgow in April and take place in Manchester, Newcastle and London in May, are in support of the BAFTA Young Game Designers (YGD) competition in association with Nominet Trust. The competition is open for entries for 10-18 year-olds until Monday 1 June.
At each workshop, run in conjunction with coding club CoderDojo, games professionals from BAFTA-winning and nominated games studios, will explain the various roles in game design and the basics of coding, and will give feedback on the young participants’ game ideas.
