[Promised my colleagues at Game Developer magazine that I'd crosspost this here. Developers who read GSW and would like to contribute to our salary survey, maybe you can help us out? Appreciated.]

The editors of Game Developer magazine and Gamasutra are reminding readers of the annual Game Developer Salary Survey, the only statistical study of game industry salaries and benefits across the years. The information provided will help inform the entire game development community.

The survey takes approximately 5-7 minutes to complete, and will run until Monday, February 16th. The results will be published in the April 2009 issue of Game Developer magazine, and further expanded in a forthcoming Game Developer Research report.

In appreciation for their time and effort, participants' names will be entered into a drawing to win a Main Conference Pass for their choice of the lineup of Game Developers Conference (GDC) events in 2009: GDC in San Francisco, GDC Canada, GDC Europe, GDC Austin, or GDC China. (Contest rules are available here.)

Interested developers can now fill out the survey and register for the GDC Main Conference Pass drawing. This survey is anonymous, and none of the information presented will be associated with any individuals.
