Entries in the 2021 International Serious Play Award competition has been set for 9 February. The Award honors outstanding learning-based digital and tabletop games in military, government, business, non-profit, healthcare, higher education, K12 and museums/visiting centers.

The 2021 award program has three categories including Commercial Digital Learning Games (Professional); Tabletop/Board Game Learning Games (Professional and Students); and Serious Games developed by Students.

Entries are judged on several elements including how well-executed and clear the feedback, assessment and learning objects are; overall gameplay, which includes how engaging and interactive the game is; the orientation for the player and the aesthetics of the game.

Gold, Silver and Bronze winners from each category will be showcased during the 2021 Serious Play Conference, online again in 2021.
