Site registration for GGJ17 is open!

Global Game Jam®, is still the biggest and most diverse gathering of game creators in the world. Making it into the record books again in 2016, it is happening again 20-22 January 2017 and you can be part of it!

Thanks to the amazing site organizers in 2016, we had 632 sites over 90 countries and with your help we want to continue from strength to strength in our ninth year. If you plan to be a marvellous site organizer for #GGJ17, you can register your site here. One of our volunteer Regional Organizers will be in touch to check 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.

If you’re new to organising a GGJ site, don’t be scared - you’ll have plenty of support from the GGJ community and we’re here to help make your jam great! Have a look through our FAQ for some idea of what to expect. You can always ask questions on Twitter to @globalgamejam, just be sure to remember #GGJ17.

Once your site is approved you'll be added to the most amazing Slack community where the whole world prepares for a weekend of creativity and collaboration like nothing else on the planet.

Let’s make this the best one yet!

Yours in jam,


Giselle, Rebecca, Jo, Bruno, Bill and Brian
