DreamHack presents Game-Hackathon with 100 000 SEK prize pool

DreamHack Stockholm is held at the Globe Arenas with the support of the City of Stockholm on September 26 to 27. One of the major activities during the event is DreamHackathon, a contest in coding a game or game concept for computer, video game console, smartphone, or tablet in 24 hours. DreamHackathon will reward and encourage the Swedish gaming and gaming miracle with 100,000 Swedish kronor to the three main prize winners.

- DreamHack has organized creative competitions since DreamHack started in 1994 when two computer and programming interested young guys named Martin and Kenny pulled together a group of friends in a school cafeteria to code for an entire weekend. Today DreamHack is one of the leading actors in gaming and esports and with the new focus on Hackathon, we are going back to our roots, says Robert Ohlén, CEO of DreamHack AB.

DreamHackathon consists of 150 participants and will be held during 24 hours between September 26 to 27 in the Globe Arena. A jury that represents the gaming industry will be on hand to judge both concept and prototypes. First prize in DreamHackathon is 60 000 SEK which will hopefully be the start of a new Swedish blockbusters, the next big esports or mobile game.

The event aims to strengthen the position of Stockholm in the battle to be the most attractive city for both the gaming industry and gamers around the world. DreamHack Stockholm is organized with the support of the City of Stockholm.
