Letter from the ED – July 2022

13 Jul 2022

Hello and happy timezone to you all, 


The IGDA has been extremely busy this July in preparation for our upcoming event, the Global Industry Game Awards–a peer nominated and peer determined celebration of individual and team contributions across many game development disciplines, ranging from art and audio, to technology and trust and safety. 

We cannot wait to premiere the GIGAs on August 22 alongside devcom, our partner and wonderful collaborator on the project. Speaking of devcom, we will also be at gamescom. So, if you’ll be in attendance, please stop by the gamescom IGDA booth and say hello! We will love to meet you and interact and engage. We’ll have a few activities and a few programming elements during the show. So please stop by, hang out with us, and we can’t wait to meet you. 

Please take a look at the rest of the content in our Insider this week. And if you have any questions at all, don’t hesitate to reach out. I’m always looking to connect and have meetings with folks who want to collaborate, and help take our IGDA mission to the next level supporting and empowering developers across the world in achieving fulfilling and sustainable careers. That’s why we’re here and we are so glad and thankful to have you in our community. 


Take care,

Dr. Jakin Vela
