Submissions: Fee Assistance

IndieCade is pleased to provide full and reduced submission fee assistance to a limited number of applicants for IndieCade Submissions.This assistance is specifically for the submission processing fee.

The IndieCade team cares deeply about providing accessibility and opportunities to as many people as possible who wish to submit their games to IndieCade. Submission fee assistance is specifically reserved for game creators in financial need. Additionally we understand that as an international event we do not all live in the same economy and it is our goal to make applying to IndieCade as universal as possible. All individuals who need financial assistance with the IndieCade submission application are eligible to apply.

In order to account for economic differences, we also have location discounts for Brazil, China, India, and Taiwan. If the previously mentioned locations are selected as your “Creator Location” in the submission form, the location discount will automatically be applied at checkout. To be eligible for this location discount, a third (33%) of your team must be living in the aforementioned countries. If you abuse the location discount and less than a third (33%) of your team is living in the country, your entry will be disqualified.

Submission fee assistance is made possible thanks to the generosity of the IndieCade community. If you would like to contribute to this submission fee assistance fund, no matter the amount, please click the Donate button on the right of this page.
