SCW RETURNS... WITH FRIENDS! :)
This year, SCW is joining forces with the Slovenian Games Conference, taking the form of the conference's entirely new art track and portfolio reviews, where you are going to be able to show your work to renowned industry professionals with decades of combined experience. Featuring top speakers from various backgrounds, the art track is going to cover a broad range of art-related topics, including illustration, concept art, 3D modeling, and more.
Purchasing the ticket (25-50 EUR) will provide you with full access to the entire conference, not just the art track. You will be able to attend any of the 20+ SGC talks, including some of the art talks that aren't a part of our track. Additionally, the ticket price includes free lunch and drinks, as well as full access to the post-conference afterparty, so make sure to join us in Ljubljana on November 30th, where you'll get to hang out with 400+ fellow artists, game developers, publishers, investors and other creative minds from all over the region!
