[In a brief reminder, IGF Chairman Brandon Boyer notes to all prospective entrants that 2011 Independent Games Festival Student Showcase entries have a final deadline of Monday, November 1st.]

If you've been planning to enter, the time is now! Submissions for the Student Showcase portion of the 13th annual Independent Games Festival are due in just a few short days, at 11:59 PM PDT on Monday, November 1st.

After breaking last year's record for the number of Main Competition entries, we're also rapidly approaching potential all-time high numbers for this year's Student Competition submissions.

If you'd like to have your own voice as part of that chorus, submit your student game to the competition -- part of the UBM TechWeb Game Network, as is this website -- by clicking this link.

In the meantime, we're currently technically and compatibility checking 2011 IGF Main Competition games, and are in the process of opening up voting to judges.

For mobile and iPhone/iPad entrants, we will be sending you key information that you require soon, including unique judge UDIDs!

As we said before, we're all looking forward to spending more time with your game in the coming months -- good luck to everyone involved!
