The Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences (AIAS) announced it is now accepting submissions for the 16th Annual D.I.C.E. Awards.

Academy members can submit titles for consideration now through Monday, December 3, 2012, at 5:00 PM PST. Nominees are announced the week of January 21 with the winners on February 7, 2013 at The Joint in the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Las Vegas.

"Unlike other video game award programs, the D.I.C.E. Awards are 100 percent peer-driven, peer-supported and peer-voted by active game makers from our 22,000-plus Academy membership," said AIAS president Martin Rae.

Previous Game of the Year winners include The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (2011), Mass Effect 2 (2010), Uncharted 2: Among Thieves (2009), and Little Big Planet (2008).
