The PAX Rising Grants program offers support to Victorian-based games businesses that have been accepted into PAX AUS 2018 in either the PAX Rising Pod for small studios and individuals or the PAX Premium Booth which is aimed at larger studios (with more than five full time employees).
These grants are to assist businesses with the cost of their stand, staffing, incidentals and producing merchandise and promotional materials.
