On April 18th we wrapped up the Spark Playtime competition, and have since been busy judging entries, tabulating points and generally enjoying the breadth and depth of effects submitted.

For this latest competition, we took your feedback and made several adjustments to the scoring system, including no longer over-weighting submissions based on their engagement metrics. Instead, we distributed our judging and scoring across four categories, including originality (10%), craftsmanship (30%), technical complexity (30%), and engagement (30%).

And now [drumroll please], we’re excited to share the top 10 cash prize winners for the Spark Playtime competition!
