Applications to run a GGJ 2020 jam site are now open! Help us make the 12th Global Game Jam the biggest and best yet! This year the jam will take place on 31 January - 02 February 2020.
Last year we welcomed over 47,000 jammers in 860 sites across 113 countries, and we created over 9,000 games together around the theme of "What Home Means to You".
We are so proud to be the biggest and most diverse gathering of game creators in the world, and we welcome you to become part of the GGJ family for 2020 to help us grow our community bigger and spread the joy of game jamming to even more people.
If you're new to organising a GGJ site, try not to be overwhelmed. The only things you need to open a jam site are a dedicated organiser and a jam venue with internet access. You can also find plenty of support from the GGJ community. Have a look through our FAQ for site organisers for some ideas of what to expect. Chat with the community on the GGJ Discord, or email questions to our help team.
To apply to run a site in 2020, register your site here. One of our volunteer Regional Organisers will be in touch within a few days to check that you are all set up for success and help you with any issues or questions you may have. Please be patient with them, they are all volunteers and sometimes have a lot of sites to get through.
Once you have spoken to your RO, and they are happy to approve your site, you'll be added to the most amazing Slack community where organisers all over the whole world prepares for a weekend of creativity and collaboration like nothing else on the planet.
We hope to welcome you into the GGJ family very soon.
Yours in jam,
Jo, Sabriana, Hernán, Gwen, Johnson, Elif, and Tim #GGJ20 Executive Committee
