SOE G.I.R.L. Scholarship Winner Announced

The seventh G.I.R.L. (Gamers in Real Live) winner has been announced by Sony Online Entertainment. The winner will receive a $10,000 scholarship and will work as a paid intern for ten weeks at the Sony Online Entertainment headquarters in San Diego.

"SOE has prided itself on being a major catalyst of women's involvement in our industry," said Laura Naviaux, Senior Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing, Sony Online Entertainment. "As our company continues to evolve and diversify our portfolio, we've found it imperative to refine our approach with game art and development, seeking out varied perspectives from the current and future leading voices in the industry. The market for compelling and original online game experiences is rapidly evolving and as a publisher it is our responsibility to listen and celebrate the spectrum of play styles among our global community, and deliver innovation in art, design and technology."

"Erin's submission was best in class and we're very excited to have her intern with the Landmark and EverQuest Next team this summer, working alongside Senior Art Director Rosie Rappaport," said Joe Shoopack, Director of Artistic Development, Sony Online Entertainment. "It's rewarding to see the SOE G.I.R.L. scholarship continue to help students achieve their career goals, and add their perspectives to the industry."
