What are all the game competitions out there -- at least the major ones? Preferably with the approximate time that they run.

So far, I've got:

  • Ludum Dare (April 29th)
  • Ludum Dare (Jam) (April 29th)
  • 7DRL (next year)
  • Experimental Gameplay Project (now until April 30th)
  • Dream. Build. Play. (May 17th)

It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

When's the next Ludum Dare? – ultifinitus Apr 8 '11 at 0:51
Seems like 29th April, 2011 – ashes999 Apr 8 '11 at 1:15
This is not a question. If it were, the data should be stored in the question (or more specifically, the answers) instead of something off-site that isn't maintainable by the community. – Tetrad Apr 8 '11 at 1:20
The thing is, a question like this requires a lot of upkeep to keep the list of competitions updated. I might recommend, if you want to manage something like this, putting it in the Game Development Wiki, but please don't keep it here. Also, we already have a question listing gamedev related contests, so if you know of other contests, post them there and don't include a date. I agree with Tetrad's close of this question. Sorry @ashes999. – Ricket Apr 8 '11 at 5:16
I've found recently which has a nice timeline of upcoming game jams. Hope that helps! – congusbongus Feb 26 '14 at 1:49
