Each year since 2004, the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences (AIAS) has been recognizing the raw talent and creativity that are the most vital driving forces behind video games today. The works of art put out by studios year after year are testaments to the importance of games as an artistic medium, and ITP hopes to put a spotlight on the best of the best with its yearly gallery.

View winning pieces from 2015-2017 below, and visit for more details on the collections, artists, and jurists.

If you'll be attending this year's E3 in person, you'll be able to view the collection when it premieres during the event from June 13-15. This year all 14 pieces will be auctioned off on eBay during E3 week. Proceeds from the auction will raise funds for the ESA and AIAS Foundations to support future game makers. The auction runs 5 days and begins Tuesday, June 13 at Noon PST, concluding Saturday, June 17 at Noon PST. All ITP bids can be made at the AIAS eBay page here.
