The «Call for Projects – Interactive Media» is a pilot funding scheme by the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia aimed at fostering the development, production and distribution of interactive digital content made in Switzerland.

The call is aimed primarily at projects involving video games, augmented reality, virtual reality or interactive comics, as well as any other form of digital content that requires a high level of interaction from the user.

The call seeks to support in particular innovative projects that combine creativity, state-of-the-art technology and commercial potential. Projects selected are characterized by their originality, formal and artistic quality, feasibility, degree of innovation and marketability.

With this call for projects, Pro Helvetia will allocate three categories of support based on the stage of the project. The categories of support are the following: pre-production grant, production grant and post-production grant.

The «Call for Projects – Interactive Media» addresses independent, interactive content developed for computers, smartphones, tablets, game consoles and other comparable interfaces.
