In total, the prize pool in our 8 competitions is 7000 PLN (1628 EUR). Please note, that the previous edition rules apply. In short – if there are less than 4 (four) entries in the contest, only the first place prize is paid. Collection of prizes is only possible at the venue, upon receipt (refer to the description of contest rules). If you are sending a remote entry, you may ask someone visiting the party to be your representative, but you need to provide a statement with details of such person (including first & last name, some document details) together with the entry. As the scene Orgas, we can’t send or transfer any money to anyone (sponsor’s requirement).
In the RETROKOMP GAME-DEVELOPMENT COMPETITION, only the material prizes are planned, supplied traditionally by irreplaceable Lotharek, Adam Zalepa and other sponsors supporting the event.
We warmly invite you to participate in all competitions, good luck! 🙂
(*): Important note: The cash prize sponsor and our host (Scena Muzyczna GAK) also has a kind request (and essentially a condition). During Saturday’s „RetroKomp Open Hours” (Saturday 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM) alcohol consumption will ONLY be allowed in the catering area. During the opening hours we have visits of families with children as well as local or national media (radio, television, portals). SM GAK is a public institution and of course they must take care of their public perception. In the catering area, there will be a food-truck, benches, tables and heaters. There you will be able to buy some alcohol. During the entire party, we kindly ask you to limit the consumption in the main lobby, just for the safety of the exhibits. During previous editions, there were some unsafe incidents around the valuable devices – we had requests from exhibitors to reduce this risk. We are sure you understand the situation well.
