What’s it all about?

The [Not Only Games] Jam is a Hackathon focused on diversity and inclusion in videogames and new digital entertainment technologies. The goal is to explore creative and innovative solutions that contribute to maximize diversity, in all of its areas, and to build a better world.

When?

Come join us at our brand new King offices in Barcelona, from the 15th to the 17th November. It’s your chance to show your skills and create something awesome.

Who can join?

University students and anyone who finished their studies in 2018 from UB, UPC, UPF and La Salle (Bachelor, Master and PhD) can make up teams. This video should provide the selection jury with a better understanding of the team members’ communication skills, creativity, initiative and overall motivation. Teams can simply record their videos and give us a link to them via Youtube, Wetransfer etc…

Each university will organise internally a Phase 1 to select their two representative teams and King will coordinate the final Hackathon.

Phase 1 consists of a 3 minute intro video where teams will present their members (name, studies, university), the role each member will have during the Hackathon and also talk about their motivations as to why they’d like to represent their university during the [Not Only Games]Jam.

Two professors from each participating university will form the jury who’ll select the top two teams representing each University during the Hackathon weekend.
