Are you planning to attend GDC this year in San Francisco? As you may know, GDC is the biggest and most important game developers conference, and it’s a great opportunity to learn new techniques, hear about amazing projects and get to know game developers from all over the world.
But, if you’re a student, the price for the tickets can be quite expensive, making it difficult for many to even have a chance to attend.
However, if you are currently still studying, or you graduated 6 months before the event takes place in March, you are eligible to apply for an IGDA Scholarship to attend GDC!
It’s not too late to apply! The deadline is December 15th and all you have to do is go to this website and fill in the form. We strongly encourage you to give it a go!
All IGDA members coming from Denmark will also get a travel stipend reimbursement.
Please note that you must be an IGDA member through our parent organization in order to apply. For students, the fee is $30 USD (205 DKK approximately). Even if you are already a member of IGDA Denmark, scholarships require you to have an international membership. If you apply, please let us know by sending us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can keep track of it!
Will you apply for the scholarship? We hope to see more members from Denmark next year!
Last year, a new event celebrating outdoors and board games was born in Copenhagen. Under the name of w00t Copenhagen Play Festival, this gathering brought together whole families, game developers and a lot of people who just wanted to have fun for a great unforgettable weekend!
With the huge success of last year, at IGDA Denmark we wanted to help this event grow bigger and better by becoming official sponsors of the event, which will take place from May 30th to June 1st.
But that’s not enough! We want more people to have the chance to discover w00t and enjoy it alongside everyone else, which is why we are giving away 10 tickets to w00t!
All you have to do is sign up through this form and we will announce the lucky winners on Thursday at noon through a random draw.
Still not convinced? Check out the w00t website for photos and info on the games that will be played!
