BAFTA is looking for a breakthrough Brit in the fields of film, TV and games. Any ideas?

This being a video game website, we're interested in the games bit. BAFTA wants to honour someone who has displayed "exceptional ambition" and has "captured our imagination as a star in the making", and it's after nominations.

Candidates must be UK nationals, making a name for themselves and have published a work between October 2012 and October 2013.

After a shortlist of candidates has been selected, BAFTA will decide on its breakthrough Brits, each of whom will get a chance to be mentored by mystery leading industry figures as well as feature in a publication made to showcase their work.

If you know someone who fits the bill, nominate them by emailing The deadline for nominating other people is Monday 1st July 2013, and all nominees must have completed their application forms by 8th July 2013.
