There are just four days left to submit sessions for this summer’s Game Developers Conference.
Following a short extension, the submission deadline for GDC 2021’s Core Concepts talks is fast approaching. Prospective speakers have until 11:59 PST on January 11 to submit their talks. If accepted, they will be included as part of this summer’s revamped Game Developers Conference.
Currently, GDC 2021 is scheduled for July and will feature a mix of physical sessions – held in San Francisco – and virtual talks available to stream online.
As you might expect, these plans may – and probably will – change due to the continuing pandemic. Nonetheless, the increased amount of accessible digital content can only be a good thing.
Speakers can submit to be included in one of the following categories:
- Business & Marketing
- Production & Team Management
- Visual Arts
If you’re interested in submitting a Core Concepts talk, visit the GDC website to review the submission guidelines
The call for submissions for this year’s GDC Summits, Virtual Reality Developers Conference, and Game Career Seminar are open from January 25 through to February 15, 2021.
We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
