come and celebrate a year of outstanding new zealand and australian game development achievements with us!

NZ Games Festival culminates in our much-anticipated awards night, The Pavs, held at Courtenay Creative!

Running through the penultimate evening of the festival, the Pavs ceremony brings together accomplished game developers from New Zealand, Australia and beyond to celebrate our industry’s talent.

Complimentary platters, a tipple or two and incredible networking opportunities are just the start of what the Pavs awards night has to offer.

After two days of wisdom at Play by Play, let loose and enjoy a night of laughter, celebration and good spirits with like minds at this cocktail evening to be remembered.
