PAX Rising Exhibition Grants

Creative Victoria is offering grants to local game developers to exhibit their work at the upcoming major games expo PAX AUS in Melbourne as part of Melbourne International Games Week 2018.

The PAX Rising Exhibition Grants offer small grants to Victorian-based games businesses that have been accepted to exhibit as part of the PAX Rising program which is held during PAX AUS 26-28 October 2018.

PAX Rising provides independent games studios with a low-cost platform to participate in Melbourne International Games Week and benefit directly from exposing their products to international publishers, media and financial investors.  This activation contributes towards the growth of Victoria’s vibrant games industry and helps reinforce Melbourne’s reputation as a global games hub. There are two types of exhibition booths:

  • PAX Rising (for small studios and individuals)
  • PAX Premium, designed for larger studios (defined as those with more than five full time employees).

PAX Rising Exhibition Grants are designed to contribute towards participation costs incurred by businesses, for example, the cost of the booth, staffing, incidentals and producing merchandising materials. Fund available through PAX Rising grants are:

  • $750 for businesses accepted to PAX Rising
  • $1,500 for businesses accepted to PAX Premium
