Unity has announced its first annual Unity for Humanity contest, an initiative with a focus on games that "inspire meaningful change."
One developer will be awarded $25,000 in funding to help bring their project to fruition.
This is a great opportunity for developers who feel as though their work could make an impact on others, and receive the added benefit of funding and mentorship as well.
As explained in a blog post, eligible projects are those that are currently in development but not yet completed. Projects must also demonstrate plans for distribution and be willing to submit to a public event (similar to a film festival).
In addition, a prototype or video demoing the project must be provided, along with a detailed pitch or treatment outlining the project details.
It's worth noting that submitted projects must be made with Unity only.
