Talk, panel and workshop submissions for this year’s EGX Digital and PAX Online mega celebration of games are open!

EGX Digital and PAX Online are taking place this September 12th to 20th, replacing the physical PAX and EGX events unfortunately cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Both shows are run by ReedPop, the company that also owns Dicebreaker.

The whopping nine-day combined event will see 24-hour content from the PAX and EGX teams, as well as websites across the ReedPop family - including Dicebreaker, Eurogamer, VG247, Rock Paper Shotgun and more.

The events will be free to attend, and include a mixture of game demos, developer sessions, live Let’s Plays, meet-and-greets with the teams and much more. Dicebreaker will be in full attendance, following up on our live stage games of Codenames, Cash 'n' Guns, Werewolf, a hilariously bad Fighting Fantasy gamebook and more last year. In short, PAX Online and EGX Digital will have everything you’d expect from the in-person PAX and EGX shows, but in the comfort of your own home.

It’s not all about us, though. EGX Digital and PAX Online are looking for people interested in being part of a video talk, panel, workshop, meet-up or something else entirely.

You might be a creator with the next hit game to show off, an industry veteran wanting to lend some advice to up-and-coming peers, someone looking to amplify discussion of an important trend or topic, or simply a lover of games with something interesting (or funny) to say. Anyone and everyone is welcome to put their idea forward for consideration

The sessions are typically one hour long, and should involve something relevant to gaming presented in an original and entertaining way. Panels should feature a diverse range of expert voices able to discuss things in an engaging and energetic manner. To help avoid any technical hiccups on the day, you’ll ideally need to pre-record the session yourself - live sessions are possible, but not preferred. (Q&As are possible as part of pre-recorded talks via live chat.)

Find more information and put forward your ideas for EGX Digital and PAX Online using the events’ respective submission forms:

The submission deadline for PAX Online is this Friday, July 24th - so get your ideas in sooner rather than later!
