Participants who identify themselves as women and are interested in participating can pitch their idea (in less than 1500 words). If you have any questions about the organization’s policy on transgenderism, read their criteria.

The project that nets the most votes will be made into a game, and digitally distributed globally. All profits from the sale of the game will be donated to charity.
