2017 MassDiGI Game Challenge registration and SIP application period open – 1/2/17
2017 MassDiGI Game Challenge registration and SIP application period open
By Tim Loew, executive director, MassDiGI
It is really hard to believe that 2017 will mark our sixth year running the Game Challenge and Summer Innovation Program. Time sure does fly.
Over the years at the Game Challenge we have seen some amazing game concepts and titles near-release from a range of indies, pros and students of all sorts. And, sponsors, mentors, speakers, volunteers and judges have helped make it all happen. Thanks again to everyone involved, we couldn’t do it without your support – especially, Microsoft New England for providing such great space each year.
That said, we expect this year’s Game Challenge to be better than ever and we have tweaked a number of things which will be noticeable to veteran competitors at the event. With only 40 slots available, team registration will go fast so if you’re an indie, college, university or high school team, sign up sooner rather than later. See you on February 24 and 25 in Cambridge.
Of course, if you’re looking for a summer internship we think SIP is something special. SIP is open to students who will be entering their sophomore, junior or senior year (and graduate students, too).
The application process is very competitive. For example, last year 216 students attending 66 different colleges and universities from around the world applied for the 24 available slots. The SIP17 application period is currently open. The program runs from May 16 to August 13, 2017 in Worcester. Click here for more information and to apply.
