Channel 4, Golden Joysticks and EA team up

Ahead of the 25th Annual Golden joystick Awards on October 26th, broadcaster Channel 4 and publisher EA have joined forces with the awards to offer wannabe mobile games developers a chance to shine.

Ideas will be pitched to a panel including: Channel 4 Education’s commissioning editor Matt Locke; EA Mobile’s European marketing director Tim Harrison and UK executive producer Chris Gibbs; and O2 UK’s head of games, Despina Kaparaki.

The lucky winner will be announced at the Golden Joystick Awards and receive a cash prize of 2500 from Channel 4 and the chance for a short hothouse placement within EA’s mobile game division.

Full details can be found at www.channel4.com/4talent. Closing date for submissions is 17th October 2007.

Hosted by Peep Show’s David Mitchell, the awards will take place on Friday 26 October, on the last day of the London Games Festival, at London’s Park Lane Hilton Hotel.
