Do you want to gamify a tourist experience in the city of Vilanova i la Geltrú?

Sign up for the Hackathons and Creative Labs of the MED GAIMS project, get one of the 5 prizes of between € 10,000 and € 15,000 and win the opportunity to implement your gamification proposal in the city.

Objectives of the Hackathons and Creative Labs call

Develop games to revolutionize the tourist experience of little-known locations, create new jobs and promote emerging companies in the sector.

The call aims to promote innovative, original and creative ideas around the theme “SECRETS”. The ultimate goal of the winning games will be for visitors to discover and experience Vilanova beyond simple observation, but always around the discovery of “SECRETS”.

What are the “SECRETS”? They are little-known historical facts, characters, and experiences not in the public domain; Examples of “SECRETS” can be an anecdote of a work of art, places not usually visited, urban legends, a wine tasting in an unusual environment, exclusive access to physical or digital content, among others.

Digital and analog games, 5 winners and 2 Hackathons and Creative Labs

There will be two Hackathons and Creatives Labs in Vilanova i la Geltrú organized by the i2CAT Foundation and Neàpolis.

  • The first Hackathon and the first Creative Lab will be on October 3-4 .
  • The second Hackathon and the second Creative Lab will be on November 21-22.

From all the participants in the Hackathons and Creative Labs , 5 winners will be selected to obtain a cash prize to implement the idea of gaming in the city of Vilanova in the next 8 months. Of the 5 winning ideas, 3 will be analog proposals (each will get a sum of € 10,000 to be implemented) and 2 will be digital proposals (each will get the sum of € 15,000).
