You've probably been following this year's Golden Joysticks closely but did you know that you too could be part of this year's show by entering Channel 4's Grand Master Flash competition and competing for a cool five grand into the bargain?
If you're a talented Flash Games developer and you've got a game you want to show the world, head on over to www.e4.com/joysticks (opens in new tab) right now - fame and a small fortune await!
Time is running out for flash game developers to get their original game designs in and scoop the title of Grand Master Flash in the inaugural year of E4.com's online flash game competition.
Entries must be submitted at www.e4.com/joystick (opens in new tab) and the deadline for entries is just a week away on Monday September 15, so time is of the essence!
As part of Channel 4's commitment to finding new gaming talent and to celebrate the launch of E4.com, the innovative station's brand spanking new website, E4 is giving away £5,000 for the best online flash games around as well as the chance to be hailed as the Grand Master Flash for 2008.
The game doesn't have to be new - any unbranded game developed over the last year is welcome, providing it hasn't been developed for a previous commercial project. Agencies are also welcome to submit flash games and E4 are accepting entries from outside of the UK.
This is a unique opportunity for developers to get their work in front of a panel of the industry's top flight judges including B3ta's Rob Manuel, The Guardian's Aleks Krotoski, 'Wonderland' founder Alice Taylor, freelance games writer and founder of 'The Law of the Playground' Jon Blyth, Kieran O'Neill, founder of HolyLemon.com and finally E4.com grand fromage Jody Smith.
So what have you got to lose? Nothing, but a space at Gaming's favourite awards show and £5000 are yours for the taking!
