Gerp 2014

News ... Information ... Competitions ... Register


At Gerp there will be a whole bunch of competitions for you to participate in. All entries must be previously unreleased and will be spread in public after the party. In case there are very few entries in a compo there will be a merge with some closely related compo and if we get loads of entries in a compo we might even split it (e.g. splitting the demo compo into a separate demo compo and a separate intro compo). The winner in each compo will get some kind of prize yet to be decided.

The competitions are also open for people who for one reason or the other is not present at the party. Send your remote entries to before 17.00 CEST on saturday the 6th of september.
