GameCity makes new ways for people to play together.

Since 2006, in partnership with Nottingham Trent University, GameCity has staged the annual GameCity festival in Nottingham, which celebrates videogames as important cultural works made by creative people with diverse skills, ambitions and imaginations. GameCity is proud to receive support and backing from Nottingham Trent University and a range of private and public sector partners including the Wellcome Trust, Confetti Institute of Creative Technologies, Nottingham City Council and the Nottingham Technology Grant Fund.

The GameCity Prize was launched in October 2011 to create new conversations about the cultural relevance of videogames. Its juries are drawn from areas of cultural practice outside the video game industry. Jurors have included Oscar-nominated film director Darren Aronofsky, rock legend Peter Gabriel, Game of Thrones Production Designer Gemma Jackson, Radio 1 DJ Jo Wiley, author and comedian Charlie Higson, and Front Row presenter Samira Ahmed.
