Development of video games

European Programme Creative Europe

The call for proposals EAC/S31/2013 “Support for concept and project development of video games” has been published by the European Commission in the framework of the Creative Europe Programme (Media Sub-Programme).

The current “Support for concept and project development of video games” call for proposals is based on the Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council on establishing the Creative Europe Programme (2014-2020). Within the field of reinforcing the audiovisual sector's capacity, one of the priorities of the MEDIA Sub-programme will be to support audience development as a means of stimulating interest in and improving access to European audiovisual works in particular through promotion, events, film literacy and festivals.

 

More specifically, the objective of the current EAC/S31/2013 “Support for concept and project development of video games” call for proposals is to provide support for the development of European audiovisual works in particular films and television works such as fiction, documentaries, children’s and animated films, as well as interactive works such as videogames and multimedia with enhanced cross-border circulation potential.

 

The current EAC/S31/2013 “Support for concept and project development of video games” call for proposals is aimed at European companies whose activities contribute to the attainment of the above objectives, and in particular to production companies that can demonstrate a proven track record.

 

Applications from legal entities established in one of the following countries are eligible as long as all conditions referred to in Article 8 of the Regulation establishing the Creative Europe Programme are met and the Commission has entered into negotiations with the country:

  • EU Member States;
  • acceding countries, candidate countries and potential candidates benefiting from a pre-accession strategy in  accordance with the general principles and general terms and conditions for the participation of those countries in Union programmes established in the respective Framework Agreements, Association Council Decisions or similar agreements;
  • EFTA countries which are members of the EEA, in accordance with the provisions of the EEA Agreement;
  • the Swiss Confederation, on the basis of a bilateral agreement to be concluded with that country;
  • countries of the European neighbourhood area in accordance with the procedures defined with those countries following the framework agreements providing for their participation in European Union programmes.

 

Eligible actions in the framework of the current EAC/S31/2013 “Support for concept and project development of video games” are digital video games regardless of platform or expected distribution method. In all cases the game must be intended for commercial exploitation.

 

The total budget available for the co-financing of actions under the current EAC/S31/2013 “Support for concept and project development of video games” call for proposals is estimated at 2.5M €. The contribution is:

  • between EUR 10.000 and EUR 50.000 for concept development (supporting activities to the point that a playable game concept is realised).
  • between EUR 10.000 and EUR 150.000 for project development (supporting activities to the point that the concept can be clearly expounded as a playable prototype)

 

The deadline for submitting proposals in the framework of the current EAC/S31/2013 “Support for concept and project development of video games” call for proposals is 28/03/2014.
