Applications for our PAX Rising Grants program are now open.

PAX is a series of gaming conventions held in Melbourne, Seattle, Boston, Philadelphia, and San Antonio, dedicated to supporting and celebrating video and tabletop gaming.

Taking place 26-28 Oct, PAX AUS 2018 will showcase booths hosted by major game publishers and independent developers, panels featuring digital games industry insiders, game culture-inspired concerts, and lots more.

Victorian businesses that will be attending PAX AUS 2018 and have been assigned a PAX Rising Pod for small studios and individuals or a PAX Premium Booth aimed at larger studios (with more than five full time employees) are eligible for PAX Rising Grants.

These grants are designed to assist businesses with the cost of their stand, staffing, incidentals and producing merchandise and promotional materials for the event.

Businesses assigned a PAX Rising Pod can apply for $750 in funding.

Businesses assigned a PAX Rising Premium Booth can apply for $1,500 in funding.

Up to $30,000 in funding will be made available through the program. Applicants are encouraged to apply soon as once the funding budget is exhausted no further grants will be available and the closing date for applications may be revised.

Applications for PAX Rising Grants currently close 5pm 30 August 2018
