Game Audio Network Guild
Demo Derby

NEXT DEMO DERBY:

GAMESOUNDCON
OCTOBER 5-7
ONLINE

What is a "Demo Derby"?

The Game Audio Network Guild Demo Derby is one of the highest rated and longest running annual sessions at the the Game Developers Conference and is also run at GameSoundCon each year.  Participants bring in examples of their work, and a panel of game audio experts review their work and provide constructive feedback.  

All submissions will be considered in the order received.  We can not guarantee that all submissions will be able to be heard – so make sure you get your submission in early!.
