New Delhi: As Paul Coelho says, “Everybody has a creative potential and from the moment you can express this creative potential, you can start changing the world.” Walking along the same lines, the Training and Placement Cell partnering with Centre for Design and New Media at Indraprastha Institute of Information Technology Delhi is going to organize an event “Game Design Hackathon” in association with Kajaani University of Applied Sciences (KAMK), Finland.

Over 250 participants are expected to showcase their talent in Game Design Hackathon that will conclude on 30 September 2018.
To bring coding and design enthusiasts under one roof and harnessing their potential, Game Design is the theme of the bilateral Hackathon. Game Design is the domain which witnessed significant advancement and progress in the past few years, but it often goes unnoticed by the majority of Hackathon organizers.
