As part of our Market Program, Screen Queensland will be offering three grants of $4,000 each to be used towards travel and accommodation costs to attend Gamescom 2023.

Gamescom is the world’s largest digital games event and a platform for the biggest players in the European games industry. The convention showcases the latest in games technology and trends as well as providing a space for international industry practitioners to convene and network.
