The Gathering Contest

The Gathering LogoLevel Up, VG and Prisjakt join forces and have a joint booth during annual easter LAN-party The Gathering, which is located in Hamar Olympic Hall. The booth will be open from 8:00 a.m to 10:00 p.m throughout the event. Here you can get some refreshments, play games or just chill out.

Not only will we have a amazing booth – you can also participate in our awesome competition with a first price of 30 000 NOK!

Level Up wants to create a game community and need your help!

Think about what such game community can contain and focus on the function you think is the coolest – and create this! We do not expect that you deliver must be completely finished or look extremely beautiful, however it should be in a working condition. You can submit your amazing solution alone or in groups of up to three people.

Attractive prizes for winners
We are proud of the prizes that will be awarded the winners of the contest!

Assessment
The jury consists of Rune & Karl-Martin from Level Up and Espen and Vegard from VGs developer team. Entries will be evaluated on the basis of an overall impression, where we look extra at creativity, effort, visual first impression and the quality of source code.

Terms of Participation
The contest is only open for those who attend The Gathering 2014. VG will get full ownership of the prize winning submissions. VG also reserve the right to use ideas from all non-winning submissions.

The raw source code must be submitted to espenh [at] vg.no before 2:00 p.m, on Saturday 19.04.2014 (link to Github, or zip). If your delivery requires an effort to set up, instructions must follow the contribution.
