Dare to be Digital.jpgOrganizers for Dare to be Digital are now accepting applications for their student game development competition, which will take place between June 11 and August 12 at Scotland's University of Abertay Dundee this year.

The contest is open to students attending universities in Scotland, India, China, Norway, Finland, Denmark, Iceland, or Sweden. After Dare to be Digital's panel reviews the applications (submission deadline is April 10), the competition will invite 15 small teams to build a working game prototype in nine weeks.

At the end of the competition, the completed projects will be showcased at the Dare ProtoPlay three-day festival for the public to try out, and Dare to be Digital's judges will pick three teams to compete for 2012's "Ones to Watch" award from BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) in Scotland.
