The G.A.N.G. Demo Derby is longstanding tradition at GDC, and has been a cornerstone event for new and emerging audio professionals. Attendees submit 60 seconds of their best work for a detailed critique and feedback from a team of leading audio directors and professionals, and participate in an active discussion with fellow panelists and audience members.

The Derby is open to all GDC attendees, but only active, registered members of the Game Audio Network Guild can submit demos for panel critique. The Derby facilitates game audio practitioners of all levels, and is suited for producers, composers, audio directors, and anyone interested in music for games and interactive entertainment.
