The summer #ue4jam officially starts Thursday, June 29th, at 2PM ET. That's when we’ll announce the theme during our regularly scheduled live broadcast on TwitchFacebook or Youtube. This year's #ue4jam will draw to a close on Tuesday, July 4th at which point we’ll stop accepting new submissions.

Participants will spend five days diving into the tools while entering their games for a chance to win prizes in various categories such as Overall Visuals, Unique Use of Theme, Fun Factor and more.  
 
Sponsors

We want to thank our generous partners at Intel, SideFX, Assembla, C-Media, Kubold, Synty Studios and Luos Arts who are providing awards to winners and services to contestants.

Full details about the event and instructions on how to pre-register can be found on the announce thread on the Unreal Engine forums. We can’t wait to see what you create!
