Submissions for the GCAP 2016 Student Showcase are now open!

Sponsored by League of Geeks, Minimega, the Interactive Games and Entertainment Association (IGEA), NNOOO, Well Placed Cactus, Robot Circus, Township Tale, The Secret Lab and Defiant Development, the Student Showcase is an initiative intended to highlight a selection of the best student work happening in Australia to the games industry at large.

We are looking for games that impress, inspire and beguile; games that innovate, extend and surprise. Games that are polished and achievable while still showing us something interesting and new.

This is an opportunity to show your work to the Australian industry, get feedback and get some practice exhibiting your game at an event.

There are 6 slots available, and each winning project will receive 1 free full pass to GCAP to exhibit their game, learn, and network.

Nominations are open until the 30th September, and successful nominees will be notified by the 7th October.

Send any questions or queries to – good luck!
