Submissions Details – Please Read Carefully

Submit your application to exhibit your game or interactive art during the PixelPop Festival 2020 Online Event, on September 12 & 13, 2020. All demos will be presented remotely, online.

Video games, experimental games, tabletop games, board games, card games, alternative controller games, game-likes, and interactive art are all encouraged to submit.

Due to our online format this year, our available exhibition opportunities are more limited than ever before. Exhibition time slots are 5-10 minutes per project, and will be scheduled between conference sessions. Exhibition formats can include pre-recorded gameplay footage, live “Let’s Plays,” developer Q&A, and more. Unique and/or interactive formats or presentation ideas are welcome, however all formats must be possible to present remotely online.

Applications will be open until July 26, 2020. Submitting this application does not guarantee exhibition time during the online event. Applicants will be notified of acceptance status no later than the week of August 3, 2020.

Pixelpop Festival carefully reviews all applications and curates projects based on several criteria, rather than accepting on a first-come-first-serve basis. We aim to offer a variety of unique and inclusive playful projects that represent a wide range of experiences, design styles, and platforms. Projects of any size or scope are encouraged to submit, though unique projects that are in a polished, demo-ready state are preferred. Completed or published games are not required.

For questions or comments, please contact us.

All Exhibitors are expected to adhere to our Code of Conduct and Event Policies.

We’re very excited to have you demo at PixelPop Festival. Thank you for reading this information and for your submission!
