Dear members of the Australian game development industry,
The Game Development Industry Survey is now live: http://www.pwc.com.au/

The survey is a joint venture between the GDAA and the Department of Industry, Innovation, Science, Research and Tertiary Education, and will be undertaken by independent accounting firm, PricewaterhouseCoopers.
As previously mentioned, the purpose of Game Development Industry Survey is to provide a snapshot of the current industry, including head counts, salary bands and revenues. The information provided will be used, principally, as part of the GDAA’s activities within Canberra – encouraging the creation of a new tax offset facility and enhanced public production funding – and to stimulate local and international investment into the Australian games industry. The data provided from the survey will also allow the GDAA to identify competitive advantages of production in Australia and to formulate international sales/marketing initiatives on behalf of the Australian industry.
In order to get an accurate snapshot of the Australian industry we strongly encourage all companies engaged in game development or those that provide services to the game development industry (including middleware providers) to participate. An understanding of the national industry is crucial to the development of initiatives designed to create stability in the Australian industry, stimulate supported growth across all sectors (indies, independents and publisher-owned studios alike), and securing Australia’s future in the global game development space.
CONFIDENTIALITY: the GDAA is acutely aware of the strong need for confidentiality. It is for this very reason the GDAA appointed PricewaterhouseCoopers to undertake, manage and report the aggregated data rather than managing the process through the association. PWC have very strong privacy policies (links to are on the survey site) and as such NO raw data will be sighted by, requested by or provided to the GDAA. ALL results provided to the GDAA will be in the form of aggregated data.
The Game Development Industry Survey should take no longer than 15 minutes.
