Every year, the GALA conf hosts an international competition that aims to celebrate the best digital games for learning. Serious Games can be submitted in several categories: Academic, Business and Student.
The awards are based on an analysis of the games by a panel of Serious Games experts.
Each year, a special theme can be given but the Serious Games do not need to be in this theme. For example, in 2022, the theme of the competition was Serious Games which supports literacy or numeracy skills.
