Milthon 2010 – European Video Game Creation Awards

Each year, parallel to the Paris Game Festival, the Milthon awards celebrate the best video games and their creators. Dedicated to the recognition of video games, the Milthon awards are true to a long tradition of artistic awards.

The organization committee gathers on a yearly basis a jury of nine VIPs and professionals from the industry that is renewed each year. Presided over by a recognized creator, the Milthon jury is tasked with selecting the game developers whose work and creativity stood out.

The recipients are awarded the Milthon trophy, named after the sculptor who crafted this splendid bronze statuette.
