Ubisoft And National Bank Announce Indie Series

The other night, Ubisoft Toronto had an Open House to celebrate its 30th anniversary as a studio (Ubisoft Toronto itself is 6 years old).  In celebration, they announced the Indie Series. An annual competition that can net Indie developers $50,000, and mentorship from Ubisoft. 

Ubisoft opened its first Canadian studio in 1997 and its first studio in Ontario, Ubisoft Toronto, in 2010. The company takes an active role to develop a passionate and creative ecosystem in Ontario where studios, small and large, collaborate to make the Canadian game development industry shine on internationally. Making games is difficult and presents many challenges: financially, creatively, and more. This is precisely why we want to connect with our colleagues, share knowledge and expertise, and together, ensure Canada continues to grow as a game development leader worldwide.

You can check out the full details on the main website, however there are some restrictions, such as being a studio between 2-50 people, and have received funding before.
