Here are the winners for GDC 2017 and iam8bit's Art Boss showcase!

Game Developers Conference are proud to announce the artists selected to take part in the first annual Art Boss showcase, presented at GDC 2017 in partnership with iam8bit!

This is a big deal because Art Boss aims to be the definitive annual showcase for artists working in the games industry, highlighting all forms of artwork created during game production -- from concept through release.

All videogame art, including (but not limited to!) pre-production concept art, production art, and in-game assets, was fair game for submissions, and now twelve winners have been selected by a panel of artists and influencers.

Each will be rewarded with a complimentary GDC All Access pass, and will have their submission put on display during the show.

So without further ado, here are the artworks selected to take part in this year's Art Boss showcase, along with the name of the artist, the title of their work and the game it depicts:
