Since 2014, Ubisoft Blue Byte has sponsored the Newcomer Award to recognize young game developers and innovative start-up studios, in an effort to support the local games ecosystem. Ubisoft Blue Byte offers Newcomer Award winners mentorship in all fields of game development. The winning start-up also gets access to an acceleration program (in partnership with SpielFabrique) and an exhibition opportunity at gamescom, Cologne (in partnership with the Indie Arena Booth). Additionally, the initiative "Blue Byte goes Campus" supports local colleges by offering training and incubation programs within the German games industry.
