After an overwhelming response to the inaugural SXSW Gaming Student Showcase, the deadline has been extended through the weekend until Sunday, January 8 at 11:59 p.m. CST.

In the spirit of giving every student a fair chance to enter their best work (what project hasn’t had an extended deadline?), we’re excited to see what new and revolutionary student games continue to make their way into SXSW Gaming.

If you’re a student, or have recently been a student within the past year, then consider applying to be a part of the Student Showcase at SXSW 2017!

All applications are free of charge, with final selections being decided upon by late January. All accepted student projects will be eligible for a complimentary SXSW Music, Interactive, or Film badge of their choice.
