Nominated for the Diana Jones Award

on Tuesday, August 2, 2016

The Larpwriter Summer School has been nominated to the Diana Jones Award for excellence in gaming. This is the committee's description:

"Larpwriter Summer School is a week long intensive course on larp design. Organized annually since 2012 in Lithuania, the curriculum is packed with lectures on design and theory, design exercises, educational games, and playing larps. The summer school is attended each year by around fifty students from around the world who have very little or no experience in larp design, with a crew of twenty people teaching and running the practicalities. The summer school has taught a new generation of designers, developed design theory and tools, and built an international network of alumni – who are all invited back each year. The alumni have gone on to create not only larps, but numerous larp festivals to showcase their works."

We are very excited about the nomination and humble to receive such acknowledgement. We are so thankful to all the contributers who have made the past five Larpwriter Summer Schools possible and to the alumni who partake in the international network. The winner will be announced at the Diana Jones Award Party in Indianapolis on Wednesday 3rd of August. One of the organizers, Alexandra Franskevich, will be present.
