Submit your ideas and games to the 2017 G4C Festival

UPDATE: We have extended the deadline for submissions from March 15 to March 24.

Games for Change Festival 2017
Submit your ideas and games for this year’s Festival by March 24


We are now accepting submissions for our 2017 G4C Festival, taking place on July 31 – August 2 in New York City. We welcome your ideas for sessions (talks, panels, workshops and demos) and game nominations for our annual G4C Awards. A limited number of submissions will be selected and receive complimentary passes to the Festival.

The Festival is a platform for all voices and backgrounds, and provides an opportunity to celebrate and reinforce G4C’s core values: diverse perspectives, creative and progressive thinking, respectful dialogue, and collaboration across industries and sectors. As such, our team of Festival curators will strive to highlight the work and achievements from underrepresented communities.

The deadline for all categories is March 24 at 11:59 p.m. EST. We look forward to hearing from you!


The 2017 Festival will focus on emerging areas in the impact games sector, each as a unique track of programming:

  • Neurogaming & Health
  • Civics & Social Impact
  • Games for Learning
  • VR for Change Summit

Have an idea for a talk that doesn’t fit in one of these tracks? Don’t worry — presentations, discussions, demos and challenging ideas outside of these topics are welcome, too!

Deadline: March 24, 11:59 p.m. EST




Each year, we celebrate the year’s best social impact and learning games at our G4C Awards ceremony and an on-site arcade of the Awards finalists for Festival attendees to play. If you have launched or will launch a game between January 1, 2016 and March 31, 2017, then go for it!

Categories include: Most Significant Impact, Most Innovative, Best Game Play, Best Learning Game, and Game of the Year.

Deadline: March 24, 11:59 p.m. EST
