Open Call FAQs

Who is eligible to participate in Open Call?
Submissions will be showcased at their respective GDD event, so you must be able to physically attend the event. In most cases, this will mean that a German developer will submit an Open Call for GDD Berlin--however, if a developer from France plans to attend in Berlin, they are also welcome to send in a submission. While not a requirement, all of the challenges will require in-depth knowledge of developer tools and Google products, so we suggest that you have proficiency in those areas.

My country is not represented at GDD. Can I submit an Open Call anyways?
All Open Call submissions must be relevant to the local markets where we will be hosting GDDs.
