New competition hopes to lure women to the world of game design
on Thursday,January 21,2010 22:01
Video games have traditionally been seen as a realm for men. One need only spend a few minutes listening to the chatter on Xbox Live to realize that women are an underrepresented group within the gaming industry. In an effort to create a more feminine influence on the world of video games, Sony Online Entertainment established the Gamers in Real Life or GiRL scholarship contest.
Now in its third year, the GiRL sees a collection of female students enrolled in design programs the chance to win up to $10,000 in scholarship money and a 10-week internship with SOE.
Students are requires to submit an existing piece of art from their student portfolio to showcase their skills, while semi-finalists will be required to create two additional unique concept designs for a game of their own devising.
"The past two GiRL Scholarship recipients were such a valued addition to our team that we are thrilled to offer this program for the third consecutive year," Laura Naviaux, SOE''s vice president of Global Sales and Marketing, told Station.com. "Our goal is to continue to encourage and reward women who share our commitment and passion for developing cutting edge online games for all demographic groups."
