Carina Soares shortlisted as Game Dev Heroes Rising Star

8th June 2023 Awards

The shortlist for the 6th annual Game Dev Heroes Awards has been announced, and we’re delighted to share that our Lab42 Environment Artist, Carina Soares, is a finalist in the Rising Star category.

Game Dev Heroes is an annual awards event that takes place during Develop: Brighton. While most games industry awards celebrate studios and games, the Game Dev Heroes celebrate individuals working within the games industry, who have been nominated by their peers for their skills and achievements.

The Rising Star Award is for individuals who have recently entered the games industry and has made a noticeable impact on their colleagues and studio.

“We’re all very proud to have Carina shortlisted for this award,” says Lee Piper, Art Director at Lab42 Games, “for someone who’s been in the games industry for such a short amount of time, Carina has continually impressed us. She has shown herself to be not only an extremely talented and versatile artist, but also a true collaborator who diligently supports her team and rises to every challenge with infectious positivity.”

The winners of the Game Dev Heroes Awards will be announced at a celebratory event on the evening of 11th July 2023
