Bit1 Game Award

We’re searching for the best Finnish game by a dev team of students.


In spring, multidisciplinary teams consisting of students, alumni and other young game developers are invited to apply in the competition. The teams compete first in local events, PreBits.

Anyone wishing to enter through these preliminaries is welcome to apply, if they qualify by the competition rules.

The final

Teams chosen in the preliminaries continue to the national event, Bit1, which is held in April or May in chancing location – and during COVID19-time only online.

The winners will be selected by top professionals of the game industry. The teams will also be able to meet business representatives and present their skills for a job or internship. Competing teams receive feedback on their games from the jury.


The three winning teams of Bit1 will receive prizes. There might be changes every year.
