The International Game Developers Association (IGDA) chapter that can attract the most new members will get a special prize – a keynote by Junction Point founder Warren Spector. The most successful chapter of the interest group dedicated to game developers will get a speech delivered by the man behind the upcoming Epic Mickey game from Disney. The deadline for this challenge is Friday, November 19.
The global challenge (there are 81 IGDA chapters around the world) uses a point system: a Lifetime Membership ($600 each) generates 10 points, a two-year Core Membership is worth 5 points and a one-year Core Membership is 2 points and a Student Membership is worth 1 point.
Obviously, the goal of this special challenge is to generate interest in the group and rapidly swell its ranks. More information on the IGDA can be found at www.igda.org.
