the pavs are nz and australia's own
cake cabinet of excellence in game development
Every year, NZGF runs The Pavs as a celebration of ANZ’s best and boldest game development achievements. From digital to tabletop, we aim to the put a spotlight on local games that have gone the extra mile to immerse, entertain and tantalise. The Pavs finalists go in the running for a coveted trophy and are featured in NZGF’s week-long games exhibition.
Of course, any event named after a dessert wouldn’t be complete without a selection of tongue-in-cheek award titles and a cheeky few at our official ceremony.
submissions are open for the pavs 2021 individual awards
