On November 25th in Dublin the formal award ceremony for BEX International Business Learning Games Awards took place. It was the culmination of the competition organized by the Business Execellence Institute, in which Pracownia Gier had also taken part.
The organizer’s purpose was to give the possibility of gaining feedback and constructive criticism to candidates in the educational games branch about their products as well as to promote games on the global market.
Projects were judged by an international jury, specialists from the field of business, education, and game design, who, in their judgements, followed criteria such as: educational value of the game, quality of learning delivery, game mechanics, and game context.
Our entry autoKOREKTA competed with games from Great Britain, USA, Spain, Ireland, and Norway.
The first award, 2016 Game of The Year, was won by the Spanish game Pacific. autoKOREKTA won the award for the category of Most Significant Scope 2016, while the award for most original game was given to the Norwegian product Playing Lean.
