Description

Hosted by Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia

Do you seek grant funding in support of computer games, virtual and augmented reality (VR/AR) and other highly interactive digital content? Pro Helvetia supports projects which have potential to reach international markets with innovative and high quality content.

We will show you best practice in how to prepare your submission for the next Call for Projects (deadline for submissions to the Call is Sept 1st 2019). You will hear from experts from industry and grant funding schemes, and see previous successful applicants on what makes a viable project and application package. Topics for the event will include writing/improving a business plan, writing a game design document, preparing a prototype for submission, and identifying a clear marketing strategy.
