Call for speakers at business networking event also ends Friday

There are just a few days left to submit entries for the Game Connection America Selected Projects competition.

The contest is designed to highlight new unsigned projects in development while also offering developers enhanced exposure at the business networking event.

Selected Projects is open to console, mobile, social, casual and online games at any stage of development. There is no restriction on genre, platform or distribution method.

Applicants will be whittled down to 15 nominees selected by the Game Connection Advisory Board for the chance to be named as Best Project 2013.

Prizes include the chance to do a five-minute presentation at the Selected Projects conference to publishers, a €700 discount on any exhibitor option and project advertisements throughout the event.

The deadline for submissions has now been extended to Jaunary 24th.

As well as the deadline for Selected Projects, the event’s call for speakers also ends this Friday.

Game Connection is looking for industry professionals to discuss the business and marketing side of the production pipeline in game development.

The event’s organisers are particular interested in subjects related to digital marketing, acquisition, community management, monetisation, business models, funding solutions, market analysis, customer relations, marketing innovation, fraud and pitching.

Subjects related to game development, visual arts, technology, game design and programming will not be taken into consideration however.

Speaker proposals must be sent in before January 25th to be considered for the event.

Game Connection America will take place in San Francisco on March 25 to the 27th.
