The Very Big Indie Pitch returns to Helsinki!

Hosted on October 01-02, during Pocket Gamer Connects Helsinki 2019, this is your chance to take part in one of the largest indie developer pitching contests in the world.

The Very Big Indie Pitch offers shortlisted developers a chance to impress some of the best mobile games journalists, answer questions and gather expert insight on their game.

The unique speed dating format gives each developer 4 minutes with each panel of experts, meaning entrants will get real feedback from the event. There’s editorial coverage in Pocket Gamer, AppSpy and beyond on offer, making this a great chance to get you, your studio and your game played by the world. Alongside the chance to potentially win one of our bespoke Indie Prizes which allow the recipients access to a range of Steel Media’s advertorial and consultancy services.

What? How? Who?

How it’ll work couldn’t be simpler. We’re inviting indie developers of all shapes and sizes along to pitch their games to our teams of tame journalists.

Twenty teams will run the gauntlet, giving their all in quickfire four-minute pitches to demonstrate that their title is worth of the Big Indie Pitch crown and coverage in the mobile games media.

Here is also a link to a helpful information pack about the BIP…


All submissions will be notified if they are successful in their application to pitch at the event. Please note that all entrants must be able to attend the event and Steel Media will not cover costs associated with getting to the event.


The closing date for entries is September 18, 2019.
