BUDDING GAME DESIGNERS are being reminded that they have just a few weeks remaining in which to place their entries for the ‘Places and People’ competition.

Promoted by the Castle to Cathedral to Cashmere partnership and Moray College UHI, the competition challenges entrants to place and character their own story of Elgin’s rich and fascinating history.

The challenge offers an opportunity for anyone interested in game design to produce their own original work – with the winning entrant receiving a £100 voucher and a second place price of £50 on offer, while their games will also be featured on the sponsor’s interactive website and other media.

David Patterson, Principal and Chief Executive of Moray College UHI said: “This is a great opportunity to celebrate the rich history of Elgin within a creative and innovative gaming environment.

“This competition was launched at the Moray Game Jam in March this year and complements the Art and Culture developments in Moray. We urge all gamers, young and old, to put in an entry and support the project.”

Full details including entry form, guidance and background information about the characters and places can be downloaded here.  Games should be submitted by midnight on October 31.

The Castle to Cathedral to Cashmere project, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, is bringing over 1000 years of history alive through various mediums ranging from website with mobile technology, Orientation point, 3-D high definition scanning, interpretation at over 25 sites, signage and public realm/access works.
