Travel Grant: Melbourne International Games Week 2018

Screen Canberra is offering 3 travel grants to ACT-based game developers to attend Melbourne International Games Week in 2018. Applications are open to individuals, teams and registered companies.  The program welcomes applications from game developers of all levels of experience, and will consider applications from less experienced developers where it can be demonstrated funding will significantly support talent and professional development.

Travel Grants are designed to assist emerging developers and businesses with the cost of the travel, accommodation, conference tickets, meals, booth hire and other related activities. You can outline what costs you plan to use the grant for in the online application. Reimbursement of costs already spent in preparation for your visit to Melbourne will be accepted upon the provision of receipts.
