PlayUK is supporting emerging videogame creatives from across the Western Balkans to advance their career in the industry. As part of PlayUK 20/21, we are pleased to announce the launch of a brand-new mentorship programme taking place in 2021.
Starting in January, the 3-month programme will pair 10 emerging videogame creatives with specially selected expert industry mentors from across the UK. Across 8 hours of one-to-one mentoring sessions, programme participants will be supported to identify their goals, ambitions, development needs and explore ways of achieving them. The programme will also feature a playful online networking event and the opportunity for participants to showcase their work to audiences from across the world.
Applications are also open and up to three spaces will be awarded to candidates from the Wider Europe region (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Israel, Kazakhstan, Russia, Turkey, Ukraine, Uzbekistan), in addition to candidates from the Western Balkans (Albania, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Serbia).
