For those who missed it amidst all the insanity surrounding E3, Screen Australia is now accepting submissions for its games production fund.
Submissions for the first round of funding will close on 12th July.
This grant is for specific productions being undertaken by Australian studios (as opposed to the Enterprise funding scheme which is aimed at facilitating ongoing business needs of game developers), and carries a maximum of AUD$500k.
According to the Screen Australia web site, funding is "intended to contribute to the total budget for getting a game to market (and beyond, depending on the nature of the game and its monetisation strategies)."
The grant takes into account the wide variety of ways games can actually make money, and will be judging amounts and milestones on a case-by-case basis.
The fund is part of the wider AUD$20 million funding which was announced last year.
