Joining IGDA Finland ry

Why join?

IGDA Finland is a non-profit operating 100% on volunteer sweat and blood with no salaries paid to anyone. Money helps us both buy things that make our life easier (such as this website and other running costs) as well as reward our volunteers. We strive to be as open as possible about our finances according to Finnish book keeping practices. As a member of IGDA Finland, you support our local game development community and also get all current IGDA main organisation benefits.

Studio Affiliation

The Global Studio Affiliation Program is designed as a valuable benefit for studio managers to present to their development teams. By joining the Global Studio Affiliation Program, a studio provides all of its employees with a personal IGDA membership, which encourages them to get involved in the community and gives them access to individual member benefits. In addition, Global Studios are recognized for supporting the Community.

The Finnish game development community is often referred to as one of the best in the whole world because of the spirit of cooperation we have. Becoming a studio affiliate is both a statement and a concrete step towards making sure that will continue for decades to come. IGDA membership promotes personal growth for your employees and also provides a platform for foreign talent to integrate faster in to our scene. It also makes us, the Finnish community, look unified towards the rest of the world. Win-win?

We will do our best to highlight your studio as often as possible in our website and print materials.

Fine print: please note that studio affiliation is different than event sponsorship. You can sponsor events without being an affiliate and vice versa. Of course both being an affiliate and sponsoring an event is a god tier community contribution!
