Bringing 18 GGJ countries together at GDC

Earlier this year we announced that, thanks to GDC and UBM, the GGJ GDC Scholarship program would be available once again.

The response to the program has been overwhelming and the calibre of the candidates is a tribute to the talent and diversity of the GGJ community.

GGJ coordinators from eighteen countries have been contacted, offering them an All Access GDC pass for the conference to be held in San Francisco, USA in March next year.

The final GDC Scholarship recipients will not be confirmed until January, as its dependent on recipients confirming visa and travel arrangements. Should any recipients be unable to attend, another applicant will be contacted and offered their pass.

Currently the following countries will be representing Global Game Jam at the 2016 Game Developers' Conference:

  • Australia
  • Austria
  • Bolivia
  • Brasil
  • Chile
  • Cuba
  • England
  • Finland
  • Iran
  • Ireland
  • Italy
  • Jamaica
  • Mexico
  • Scotland
  • Serbia
  • Sweden
  • Tunisia
  • Zambia

 Congratulations to all GDC Scholarship recipients, we are honoured to have you representing us in California next year!
