Thanks to IGEA & GCAP, Accessibility Unlocked has been given the opportunity to provide 10 tickets to disabled developers to attend GCAP 2020.
GCAP (Games Connect Asia Pacific) 2020 is an industry-based conference focused on up-skilling the Australian game development industry via education, knowledge sharing and the provision of extended personal and business connections. Any proceeds generated are used for industry support, education and advocacy initiatives.
GCAP caters to a wide range of disciplines. Since it’s reboot in 2010, GCAP has grown and attracted an engaged audience and esteemed speakers from around the world. GCAP is one of the first official events of Melbourne International Games Week and as of 2020, is run by the Interactive Games and Entertainment Association (IGEA) – the peak industry association representing the voice of Australian and New Zealand companies in the computer and video games industry.
With GCAP 2020 being entirely online, this may be the most accessible GCAP has ever been. GCAP 2020 runs from the 5th - 7th of October, with talks, networking, awards and more scheduled.
Who can apply to attend?
Accessibility Unlocked's focus is on Australia & New Zealand as this is our target support area. However, due to the nature of this years event we are opening applications to all regions. We especially encourage those who are in the Asia-Pacific region (as GCAP is Games Connect Asia Pacific) to apply - however, all disabled developers are welcome to apply and will be considered.
When do applications open and close?
Applications are open now!
They will close Friday 25th at 11:59pm (AEST).
I'm still a student, or I'm not working in industry yet. Am I eligible?
Yes! You are not ineligible just because you are job-seeking/a student - GCAP includes GCAP loading, which is targeted entirely at early creators and students, so this pass would still be valuable!
Who will see my application and make a decision on it?
The Accessibility Unlocked team will be selecting individuals to attend.
All applications will be anonymized for review (your name, email, and role will be hidden) by a team member who will not be involved with the decision process. We ask our team members to raise any conflicts of interest if they recognise an application, in which case they will be removed from judging those applications. The team member may provide context on the kind of role (e.g. designer, or similar) but will not reveal your work location to the broader team.
I am outside of Australia & New Zealand - can I still apply?
Yes! You are welcome to apply.
I have a question that isn't listed here!
I'm press and we want to talk!
