4th Annual Gathering of Video Game Legends &
Student Game-Concept Pitch Competition

Last August Westwood College brought together some of the interactive entertainment industry's most accomplished professionals to share their experience on getting started in gaming, what they've learned along the way and to discuss the future of the gaming profession. 

Students from various local colleges participated in a "pitch" contest, where they had 1 minute to pitch their game idea to a panel of Legends.
