The Big Indie Pitch is returning to Apps World, which is taking place at London's ExCeL Centre on 19th-20th October.
So, come join us on the afternoon of Thursday 20th October for networking and pitching, as we once again put the spotlight on some of the world's best indie developers.
The unique speed dating format gives each developer three minutes with each panel of experts, meaning entrants will get real feedback from the event. The winner will also get editorial coverage in Pocket Gamer, AppSpy and beyond, making this a great chance to get you, your studio and your game played by the world, alongside potentially winning a share of a Steel Media marketing package worth a massive $5,500.
What? How? Who?
How it’ll work couldn’t be simpler. We’re inviting indie developers of all shapes and sizes along to pitch their games to our teams of tame journalists.
Twenty teams will run the gauntlet, giving their all in quickfire four-minute pitches to demonstrate that their title is worth of the Big Indie Pitch crown and coverage in the mobile games media.
If you fancy the chance of winning the Big Indie Pitch (or coming along to spectate and show your support), getting signed up couldn’t be easier.
We'll then review the entries and inform the finalists regarding their inclusion.
All submissions will be notified if they are successful in their application to pitch at the event. Please note that all entrants must be able to attend the event and Steel Media will not cover cover costs associated with getting to the event.
*** Please note you do not need to have purchased a ticket to attend Apps World to enter the Big Indie Pitch. We will organise a pass for you to get into the venue for the Big Indie Pitch event ***
