PEACEapp Competition

Scholarship / Financial aid: 3 prizes of $5000 each

Date: 2014

Deadline: 15 October 2014

Open to: entrants of at least 13 years or older

Announcement follows

PEACEapp is a global competition to promote digital games and gamified apps as venues for cultural dialogue and conflict management.

Have you already developed a game or app like this? You could win $5000 in recognition for your work.

Do you have an idea or a prototype for a PEACEapp? You could win expert mentorship to support its development. Submit your entry by October 15.

PEACEapp is a global competition organized by the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations and the United Nations Development Program in collaboration with Build Up to promote digital games and gamified apps as venues for cultural dialogue and conflict management. Additional partners of PEACEapp include GamesForChange and the Institute for Economics and Peace.

We invite you to submit your entry now. The competition is open to three kinds of entries: (i) digital games and gamified apps developed purposefully for this competition; (ii) already existing digital games, and (iii) creative re-purposing of existing digital games to meet the aim of PEACEapp.

The competition will consider entries at all stages of development – from prototypes to fully developed. PEACEapp’s international jury will select five winning entries: three that are fully functioning and two that are in development. The three fully functioning games or apps will receive an award of USD$5,000 each. The two in development will receive mentorship from expert partners. In addition, one member of each award-winning team (completed or in development) will be invited (all travel costs covered) to the Build Peace conference (Cyprus, April 2015) to share their product with conference participants.

The deadline for applications is October 15, 2014. Winners will be announced by November 30, 2014.

PEACEapp builds on the success of Create UNAOC – a competition for apps and games that promoted intercultural dialogue run by UNAOC and its partners in 2012.

Drawing on the unique cultural resources and experiences of developers, technologists and budding peacebuilders around the world, appPEACE invites individuals and teams — beginners and experts alike — to create new digital games or use existing digital games to foster dialogue that prevents violence.

The competition asks entrants to engage with questions that are central to building peace. How can we create new spaces for dialogue and shared action aimed at preventing violence? Is the key to provide opportunities for contact among individuals of different cultural or religious backgrounds? Can sharing stories also encourage mutual respect for cultural and religious values? Or is it about offering people tools to question and reframe their identity?

These questions are key to the work of the UNAOC, given its mandate to promote intercultural awareness. These questions are also closely linked to UNDP’s work on conflict prevention and peacebuilding.

Prizes & awards

Three finalist teams will be awarded USD$5,000 each

Two finalist teams will be awarded with professional mentorship.

One member of each award-winning team will be invited (all travel costs covered) to the Build Peace conference (Cyprus, April 2015) to share their product with conference participants.
