The sponsorship offers the following to selected designers:- a designer badge for the convention- a shared room (1 roommate) from Fri-Sun- up to $500 in travel to Morristown, NJ- special events and mentoring throughout the weekend
If you get this sponsorship, you will be expected to attend Metatopia 2017. In addition to bringing your own game to playtest, you are also expected to participate in playtesting other people's games. Participating in this way is a valuable part of Metatopia both for you and for the other attendees.
In addition to your overall participation, we expect all scholarship recipients to attend group breakfasts each day to share their experiences and connect to each other broadly. Metatopia staff will help you manage your schedule to avoid conflicts with group meals, and we'll make a few other optional events available as well.
Applications are due by October 1st, 2017. Thanks!
