Two kinds of calls for projects are regularly opened to Swiss creatives working in games and other interactive media.

Calls to participate in SwissGames Delegations

The selection for the main SwissGames delegations to GDC, Gamescom, Game Connection – Europe or Nordic Game Conference are processed through open calls for participations. We periodically invite Swiss game developers to submit a dossier presenting their current project as well as their plans and expectations for the respective events.

Interactive Media Work Grants

Pro Helvetia supports the preproduction, production and postproduction of quality projects in games, VR, AR or any other interactive formats. Applicants must provide a playable prototype as well as a dossier describing their plans. The applications are then assessed by a jury of Swiss and International experts.
Funded projects can be supplemented by individual coaching measures.
