Apply to the Jury

Applications close 28th of April 2023.

The jury consists of a diverse set of individuals from around the world, who volunteer their time and experience to listen to our students’ presentations, play all of their games and deliver awards for outstanding achievements. Each member brings their distinct expertise and shares their insight and experience directly with the students at the Gotland Game Conference.

This is a great way for game companies to support higher education and scout talent before anyone else gets the chance. In 2019 we had 19 game companies represented on the Jury, such as King, CD Project Red, Might & Delight, Star Stable and many more.

Jury Duty – but fun!

The jury attends student presentations on Friday 26th of May, starting at 13.00 ( they will take 2-4 hours, with breaks), play their games on the show floor (both at an exclusive booth crawl Friday after the presentations and at the public conference on Saturday and Sunday), and provide thoughtful and constructive feedback throughout the conference. Jury duty requires no work before the event, but once here you have to prioritize and make time to play all games – enough to provide fair criticism and advice.

So, if you are interested in going to Visby to meet our students, provide them with thoughtful feedback, and participate in a uniquely wide-eyed games conference, simply fill in the application!

Thank you!
