Build sales for FREE with Origins Award Road Shows!

Submit your products NOW to get extra promotion at Fall conventions

Promote your new games for FREE at regional cons for free by submitting them NOW for the 35th annual Origins Awards!

In 2008, GAMA rolled out the Origins Awards Road Show, a new promotional program to build visibility and sales of the Origins Award nominees. The Road Show demonstrated Origins Award game submissions at a number of regional conventions. The response was overwhelming! Retailers saw immediate interest from customers as convention attendees started requesting the games that they saw in the Road Show.

For next year’s awards, we’re expanding the Road Shows to reach even more conventions. Instead of one show, we’ll run an east and west Origins Road Show, demonstrating Origins Award submissions to more gamers than ever! The Road Shows start in October and continue through winter and spring of next year.

To get the MOST VISIBILITY, submit your games NOW for the 35th annual Origins Awards!

The Origins Awards are the only awards that include input from every level of the gaming hobby: professionals, retailers, distributors, publishers, and (most importantly) gamers themselves. These Awards truly are chosen by the entire hobby!

We are now ready to accept submissions for the 2009 Origins Awards. Any game published during the 2008 calendar year is eligible for next year’s awards.

To put your product into the Origins Awards and promote it through both the East and West Origins Awards Road Shows, follow these steps:

1. Complete the Origins Award submission form at

2. Send eight (8) copies of your submission — one for each Road Show, one for each of the five jury members, and one for display during Origins.

Feel free to include any other promotional materials that you would like to have distributed to everyone who visits the Road Show!

Don’t delay! The sooner we receive your submission, the better job our volunteers will be able to do when the time comes to present your game at the Road Show.
