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!
Have you heard of Shayla Games? It’s Denmark’s newest game development event, which enjoyed a huge success after its first run last year in May 2014.
This year, it’s only getting bigger, and with a strong focus on VR to boot!
With a program full of speakers from Oculus VR, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, Simplygon and more, a Virtual Reality game jam, boat races (yes, you read right) and more, the second edition of Shayla Games is shaping up to be quite an amazing experience.
So IGDA Denmark has teamed up with Shayla Games to provide a scholarship to enter the game jam!
As an IGDA Denmark scholarship, we prioritize people who have helped out at previous events such as Nordic Game Jam and Unity Nights, but we still urge you to apply for this scholarship via this online form.
The event will take place May 22-24th 2015, over the weekend, at Aalborg University Copenhagen. That’s the same place as the last few Nordic Game Jam events.
Sign up now and we’ll reach out to you later during the week!
