Another year of top quality Indie Pitching is coming to a close and we’re delighted to have witnessed some truly awesome games in what will be a record year with a whopping 20 pitches taking place.

This year we’re also going to do something a little extra special and delighted to be able to add a cherry on the top with the launch of the brand new Big Indie Awards 2017 in association with indieSky.

What is it?

The Big Indie Awards marks the finale of a year of indie pitching and also offers a chance for both our pitchers and also ALL indie developers who may not have made it to our events to put their game forward for a chance of global recognition, some cold-hard cash and a trip to the awards final in Shenzhen, China!

How does it work?

Developers simply need to submit their game through our REGISTRATION FORM form by October 15th (those familiar with previous indie pitches will know how easy it is) with some info, screens, a video and if possible a link to a playable/live version. That gets entered into the competition.

These entries will then be filtered into a longlist in a provisional judging process, and then be put in front of our team of crack judges (including journalists, influencers, developers and other experts) who will score each game and help us to create a shortlist that we’ll announce at the end of October.

Following that we’ll invite the top three teams to come to the awards ceremony in Shenzhen on November 21st and also spend a couple of days meeting Chinese companies and exploring the beautiful coastal city of Shenzhen (all flights and accommodation will be paid).

The developers will get a chance to present their games on stage at a ceremony following an indie developer panel and talk, where the final winners will be revealed.

Who can enter?

Any mobile indie developer who has a game released in 2017 or has one in production that’s slated to launch in the next six months can enter the competition.

All previously shortlisted Big Indie Pitch entrants since September 2016 will be fast-tracked past the initial filtering process to the longlist.

How to enter?

In order to enter, simply head over to our REGISTRATION PAGE with the following information ready.

  • Core details (team name, developer names, mails, engine used and project status with estimated launch date)
  • Desription of the game and key concept
  • Concept art/screens
  • Video
  • Playable file (if available)
  • Also, if you're a former Big Indie Pitch contestent, then please remember to mention this alongside which pitch you were a part of  

What can you win?

We have an array of prizes up for grabs worth over $25,000 including $15,000 of marketing promotional spend on SM channels, tickets and expo tables at PG Connects worth $5,000 and $5,000 of cold, hard cash - plus paid trips to China (inc flight, accommodation, visa).

Naturally there’ll also be a fair amount of media coverage, an award and global adoration.

If you’re very lucky you might get a publishing deal...?


Who’s behind all this?

The Big Indie Awards 2017 are the latest grand plan from the Steel Media team (the firm behind Pocket Gamer, PG.Biz, PG Connects, the Global Connects Parties and of course the Big Indie Pitch itself) but it wouldn’t be possible without the support and love of the lovely folks at indieSky.
