So I've written and released my first game. It occurred to me that there are competitions and awards for games. You know, like best game of 2013, best new game, etc. I have a vague memory of seeing some of these before Christmas, I think.
How do they work? Not that I think my game could win, just curious about how you even get in the running (my game is on the iPhone, if that affects things).
1. What sort of game awards and competitions are available?
2. How do you enter your game for consideration or will that just happen?
3. Are they worth looking into or just a nice to have if you happen to win?
Any info would be helpful really.
