Not only are we looking for the most original, extravagant and alternative playful concepts, The Ultimate IndieMash is also a celebration of diversity within the indie-game community. We strongly encourage applications from candidates who are likely to be underrepresented in the gaming world. From coding mothers to queer visual artists and indigenous storytellers, everyone is welcome to show their unique projects and creations to our audience online and in the theatre, so sign up now! You don't have to come to the Netherlands to participate, all contestants get to show their project through a video connection!

This year, for the first time, we’re collaborating with the Vestzaktheater in Enschede and streaming producers MadTV from Wierden, to create an exciting show with music, glitter, glamour and of course the main acts of the evening; the playful contestants!
