Get those submissions in ASAP for the event’s biggest year yet!
If the event is new to you, here’s how the official press release breaks it down:
Game Devs of Color Expo is dedicated to amplifying the creative power held by people of color in games. Creators of color make great games but are often pushed to the margins. We fight to create a better games industry that is intersectional and equitable by organizing revolutionary events, uniting our vibrant community, and building access to knowledge, funding, and opportunities
Now in its sixth year, Game Devs of Color Expo had its biggest year ever in 2020. Last year’s event culminated in an award ceremony where a total of $90,000 in development grants were awarded, with five developers each winning a $15,000 No More Robots x Game Devs of Color Expo Grant, and one developer winning the $15,000 Humble Bundle Game Creators of Color Award, which included a publishing and distribution deal. Here’s hoping for even higher heights at this years expo!

Normally hosted at the Schomburg Center in Harlem, New York, GDoCExpo first went online in 2020 in response to the global COVID-19 pandemic. Last year’s online event featured developer talks, interviews, panels, and a lineup of tabletop and video games, as well as a digital direct showcase and Steam event.
