The Qantas Spirit of Youth Awards has always sought to seek out young Australian talent and reward with cash, opportunities, mentorship — and now it's moving into games. Problem is, no-one seems to have noticed!
Currently Qantas are offering a trip to South by Southwest, an interactive conference held in Austin Texas, a professional mentorship with Soap Creative's Directors Ashley Ringrose and Brad Eldridge and $5000 in cash.
It's a pretty awesome opportunity, but those affiliated with the Awards have got in touch with Kotaku to tell us that, despite having had the awards open since the first week of November, they've only had four entries. What's wrong folks — don't you like free money?
I know we have a lot of young game developers — be they artists, designers, illustrators — reading the site. And having met some of them, I know how talented some of you are. This sounds like a great opportunity worth pursuing. Let's see if a Kotaku reader can go and win this thing!
