See these 10 devs compete to make the best game pitch at GDC 2018

10 selected dev teams will each be offered pitch prep and training, then get 5 minutes to pitch (in front of a live audience!) at GDC 2018, followed by questions, advice, and feedback from the judges.

In less than a week the 2018 Game Developers Conference will be in full swing, and show organizers want to give you a heads-up about the brave developers who will be participating in the popular GDC Pitch event at GDC Play this year!

The ever-popular GDC Play will once again showcase some of the most interesting emerging/independent developers and their games, and the GDC Pitch event will help select GDC Play exhibitors hone their pitching skills in front of a panel of expert judges -- as well as a live audience! 

GDC Pitch will once again be hosted by Jason Della Rocca of investment platform Execution Labs and take place Wednesday and Thursday, March 21st and 22nd, during GDC 2018. 

10 selected teams will each be offered pitch prep and training, then get 5 minutes to pitch, followed by questions, advice, and feedback from the judges. The judges will declare a "Best Pitch" on each day, and award each a complimentary All Access pass to GDC 2019.
