We want to help you out!
Fair Play is Play by Play's own accessibility programme, helping under-represented and under-resourced people in our industry enjoy the same opportunities as others.

Wellington’s unique game development conference is back, here to bring you the fifth year of diverse and quirky content. However, we also know that there are some barriers to entry that folks can face.

If we could make the conference free, we would! We’d love it if everyone could share their knowledge and be a part of the community without a price tag; unfortunately, the festival week and conference itself incurs many costs we must cover. We realise that this cost does exclude people from attending who might otherwise find it very useful, or discourage those who may be under-resourced or under-represented in our industry. That’s why we have a limited pool of free all-access tickets for these folks, so an opportunity to attend free-of-charge can be provided.

Fair Play, for everyone

Welcome to Fair Play, our accessibility program!

The conference will take place from the 24th to 25th April 2020 and first-time attendees are encouraged – students, hobbyists and professionals alike. We’re a unique conference that prides ourselves on talking about niche knowledge, and out-there ideas all while having fun while doing so; but this means we need diverse people attending and contributing. If you identify as a minority or even as someone on the outskirts of the games industry we would definitely love to hear from you!

Applications will close on the 12th of February 2020.

Apply for Fair Play 2020!

Applications have now closed – thank you to everyone who has put themselves forward!
