In the first round of the competition, you’ll present and be critiqued by our panel of judges followed by a mentoring session. You’ll receive expert feedback on how to get investors and publishers interested. In a second round, you’ll pitch again but this time in front of a live audience and for a prize!

Quick facts about entering

The full rules are available on the entry form, but this is some basic info to get you started.

Selection Process: The DreamHack Staff reviews all of the game pitches submitted and considers them based on the materials entered. These materials will be reviewed ONLY by our most qualified DreamHack staff with game industry experience that applies. There are no entry fees.

Eligibility: You must be an independent developer to enter with minimal resources to complete the game (examples of this are small teams, minimal funding, etc.). You must have all the materials to present your game at your given time. The game must be your original work. You may enter only one title. If an individual, you must be at least 18 years old.

Perks: You will receive invaluable information on how to properly pitch your game and come prepared to a meeting. You’ll have the chance to win the title of “Best Game Pitch” (which investors and publishers will appreciate) and $2,500 USD in prize money with a trophy. Your game will be promoted on our site and social channels. Each team representing the game will receive 2 complimentary DreamHack 3-Day tickets to the event.
