Green Jamwich is a programme started by multi award-winning young entrepreuner, Dean Day. It has been designed to empower students with the knowledge and experience they require to launch themselves into the UK games industry. Green Jamwich is a game jam for educational institutes across the UK, awarding the winning teams with part time employment at established game studios.
A game jam consists of a short period of time where teams are challenged to design and develop a prototype game based on a given theme, it's a popular event within the games industry. Green Jamwich is the only game jam that offers employment for its winners.
Research shows that half of UK graduates don't find work within their field of study, the games industry included. Green Jamwich has been put in place to help students gain work experience and portfolio pieces whilst working at reputable games studios within the UK.
All higher education institutions that teach games or media can have their students apply to join the Green Jamwich initiative. We're looking for colleges, universities and sponsors to join our ranks; our pitch and funding will help us run events every year and create a nationwide reputation for Green Jamwich.
We believe that the reputation we build for Green Jamwich will help our winning students & graduates find the jobs they deserve and allow them to excel in their career.
