UK Games Fund Opens for 2021

06 May 2021/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

The UK Games Fund is intended to support UK video games development. Aimed at helping smaller companies get concepts into production, the Fund provides additional support to the video games sector, helping to maximise the contribution to economic growth this sector is already delivering.

The Fund offers grants to support video games projects, as well as creating jobs, nurturing talent and furthering the growth of games clusters all around the UK.

The current round is specifically open to established UK-based games development companies with fewer than 50 employees that are developing early-stage projects.

Applicants should already have completed some early concept work and have a proof-of-concept demo or other visual pre-production work. Those who meet this criteria can access a grant of up to £25,000.

The deadline for applications is Monday 31 May 2021 (09:00 BST).

How To Apply

Round 7 of the UK Games Fund is open to Expressions of Interest (EoIs). The deadline for submitting an EoI is Monday 31 May 2021 (09:00 BST).

Round 7 is the first of two calls for applications that will open in 2021. Round 8 will open later in 2021.

More details are available at the programme website
