Deadlines & Fees

NYX Game Awards makes every effort to keep entry costs low. Thus, our Regular Game Entry is $180, and Game Marketing Entry is $119 for each work or $180 for each campaign.

Rather than increase the fee for each entry, fees are only charged in order to cover administrative costs like printing, mailing, and data organization. For this reason, each participant is charged a flat one-time $30 administration fee. When all participants pay the same low fee, those submitting more than one entry will actually pay less than if fees were on a sliding scale.
