Update: NGDC submission deadline for NGS in Kajaani is 21 September – apply now!
The organisers of the Nordic Game Discovery Contest are pleased to return to the Northern Game Summit next month with a brand new and very exciting format for the live pitch competition.
Instead of the earlier “first pitch, then receive feedback from the judges” format of the previous two seasons, NGDC is introducing round-based, intense on-stage competition for points and glory in the qualifiers and finals – more entertaining for the live audience, as well as fun and rewarding for the contestants.
“It’s so great to be back in Kajaani with NGDC for the third time in a row,” says NGDC host and Nordic Game CCO Jacob Riis. “I’m very excited about the new contest format, and hope the contestants and audience will like it too.”
“We’re very happy to welcome the NGDC to the Northern Game Summit,” adds NGS event organiser Antti Tiiro. “The contest has grown to be part of our annual program, so we’re excited to witness the new concept here in Kajaani. Our event goes through changes every year to match our audience’s needs and expectations, and it’s great to see Nordic Game doing the same with their contest. Welcome!”
The winner of the NGDC Season III qualifier at Northern Game Summit will earn a seat in the NGDC Grand Finals next year at Nordic Game 2019, 22-24 May in Malmö, Sweden.
