  • Helping winning designers to find a publisher - over 70 games have been published since its creation.

The contest is open to all designers of games without age limit, the only constraint is that the game proposed is not published before the awards. In addition, the authors who have already published 5 games or more can participate with only one game, to leave their chance for young designers.

4 prizes/ labels can be allocated. With the agreement of designers, the awarded games are presented to various publishers. This initial contact is made freely and the objective is to facilitate the introduction of the designer in the publishing world. If the quality of the games was deemed insufficient, some prizes would not be awarded. You will find all the information in the contest rules.

Canadian Toy testing council
Canadian Toy testing council - Auszeichnung / Award - connexxion24.com

Since 1952, the Canadian Toy Testing Council (CTTC) has been assessing toys on the basis of design, function, durability and play value, to help parents choose good toys. In its program, children test toys in their own homes for a period of six to twelve weeks. As nearly as possible, the council tries to duplicate the circumstances under which consumers will assess the value of a toy after it has been purchased. The council´s home testers treat their toys as if they were their own - no special measures are taken either to encourage the children's attention, or to prevent normal wear and tear.

After the evaluation period, information is gathered from the home testing families and analyzed by the CTTC. The CTTC also convey the findings directly to the manufacturer or distributor of the toy, in order to help companies understand the expectations of children and parents, and to encourage toy-makers to keep these expectations in mind when they design other toys.
