The Game Devs of Color Expo is back once again to talk about games and pile more titles into your ever-increasing backlog. The folks at GDoC reached out this week to announce that 2023’s online expo will be held from September 27 to 30 and that submissions for panelists, speakers, and games are officially open.
For those looking to book speaking engagements, the link is here. If you have a game that you think would flow well for GDoC, that application is here. All speakers are paid with no submission or exhibition fees for those who decide to apply. Games and devs who are selected are also opted into the chance for one of several no-strings grants given out each year.
“Our event is part of a larger effort to build lengthy and sustainable careers for people of color who make games,” says Catt Small, GDoCExpo co-founder and co-organizer. “We’re excited to continue having real conversations about the industry while highlighting cutting-edge work by
our community. Attendees will leave the expo feeling connected, invigorated, and hopeful about the future of games.”
Make sure to fill out your forms soon. Deadlines for applications tend to fall on the end of April.
