We have decided to combine The Big Indie Pitch at Essex with The Big Indie Pitch at Develop:Brighton 2018, which will take place later in this July. More information including how to apply can be found here. However, thanks to this decision, and the support of The Games Hub, we will no be able to offer even more developers a place at the pitch, and the opportunity to meet with our expert judges.

Any submission to The Big Indie Pitch at The Games Hub in Essex will automatically be transferred to The Big Indie Pitch at Develop:Brighton 2018.

The Big Indie Pitch is coming back to England following our trip to Prague, as we head to The Games Hub in Essex. So, come join us for networking and pitching, as we once again put the spotlight on some of the world's best indie developers this December at The Games Hub in Colchester, Essex.

The unique speed dating format gives each developer 4 minutes with each panel of experts, meaning entrants will get real feedback from the event. There's editorial coverage in Pocket Gamer, AppSpy and beyond on offer, making this a great chance to get you, your studio and your game played by the world. Alongside the chance to potentially win one of our bespoke Indie Prizes which allow the recipients access to a range of Steel Media's advertorial and consultancy services.

What? How? Who?

How it’ll work couldn’t be simpler. We’re inviting indie developers of all shapes and sizes along to pitch their games to our teams of tame journalists.

Approximately twenty teams will run the gauntlet, giving their all in quickfire four-minute pitches to demonstrate that their title is worth of the Big Indie Pitch crown, and coverage in the mobile games media.

Come along

If you fancy the chance of winning the Big Indie Pitch (or coming along to spectate and show your support), getting signed up couldn’t be easier.

To register for The Big Indie Pitch at The Games Hub, Essex 2018 then simply head over to our REGISTRATION PAGE and register your details.

We'll then review the entries and inform the finalists regarding their inclusion.

All submissions will be notified if they are successful in their application to pitch at the event. Please note that all entrants must be able to attend the event and Steel Media will not cover cover costs associated with getting to the event.

Submissions Are Now Closed

The event is completely FREE so sign up as a developer to let us know you're coming, BUT be sure to sign up/come early as space is limited.

If you don't get into the competition, you are of course more than welcome to still come along, grab a drink, and check out the competition.

Oh and if you're not sure what to expect, then you can check out all the epicness from last year's Big Indie Pitch @ Develop:Brighton.
