Submission Information

The two major guidelines for Prize Submissions are as follows. Prizes should be appropriate in terms of content for the stream, as a guideline try to keep things PG-13 at their worst. Prizes should also be at least somewhat related to a game in the marathon, or to gaming in general.

The deadline for prize submissions will be June 21st at 11:59PM PDT. If you cannot make this deadline, please contact the Prize Coordinator immediately and we will attempt to accommodate you on a case by case basis.

Submitted prizes will not be publicly visible until they are accepted. Each Donor will receive an email notifying them about the status of their submitted prizes after they have all been reviewed.

If you are planning to submit multiple similar or smaller prizes, such as perlers, patches, or figures that are not packaged together, and feel strongly about keeping them together as a set, please make this information known in the "Extra Information" field of the form. Occasionally, we may split groups of similar smaller items into individual prizes instead of keeping them together as a single prize.

Guide to Submitting

To submit a prize to AGDQ2018 the first thing you will need to do after clicking the submission link is create or log into a prize submission account. Note that a prize submission account is separate from your Games Done Quick account; if you have not registered a prize submission account, you will need to do so.

Most of the fields should be self explanatory, but it is worth mentioning that the Suggested Start and Suggested End game fields may appear blank. This is because these fields draw games from the schedule, and likely will not function properly until the schedule is publicly available on or around April 22nd. Until then, feel free to use the Extra/Non-Public Information field for game suggestions.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I donate steam keys or other digital copies of games?

In order to ensure the integrity and compatibility of digital games we can only accept digital copies of games if they come to us directly from the developer.

When will the prizes be drawn?

Prizes are typically drawn and shipped a short time after the event, generally we wait around a month to ensure that we properly comply with local and state laws.
