Spain will host its first indie Paella Awards

Valencia’s Circle of Video Games focuses on independent developers.

Paella Awards

Indie games and its developers will be the focus of the new international and annual event Valencia Indie Summit to be presented on March 1st and 2nd, during which the Indie Paella Awards will be delivered to distinguished independent projects in the gaming industry.

Spanish organization Cercle Valencià dels Videojocs (Valencia’s Circle of Videogames in Catalan language) is the primary responsible for this new and indie-focused event, with the support of AEV (“Asociación de Estudiantes de Videojuegos” or Video Game Students Association) and innovation centre Las Naves.

The event will take place during March 1st and 2nd in the Las Naves building located in 16 Joan Verdaguer street, Valencia city, and anyone interested in attending can register for free through their Eventbrite webpage.

Additionally, indie developers wanting to present their projects in the Valencia Indie Summit can submit them, also for free, by completing this form.

The summit will present debate forums with national and international industry professionals and a testing area to try, first hand, new indie games, as well as dissertations concerning the indie gaming ecosystem.

Paella Awards

The highlight of the event, apart from giving indie developers the possibility of making new and productive contacts in the industry and getting to know their peers, are the Indie Paella Awards. These trophies will be given to selected projects that stand out through their graphics design, sound, and other aspects.

Although the complete speakers list has not yet been released, we already know some of who’ll have an important role during the summit, such as Janna Palm, director of Stugan (game developer accelerator); Raul Rubio, CEO and creative director of Tequila Works (creators of Rime and co-creators and editors of Sexy Brutale, among other games); and Carlos García, CEO and game director of Anima Project (Anima: Gate of Memories).
