I'm trying to find out if there is any chance at entering some sort of competition for game design documents. I'm terrible at finding these things on my own. Facebook is pretty much my news feed for anything on the web... I'm terrible.
I'm trying to enter our GDD into some contest for reputation and potential funding for the project. We could use the money for a variety of licenses (Unity 3D, iOS/Android, audio/art assets, etc.). We really don't need much, just the basics to build a bigger game. The bigger side is getting our name out there, showing the other guys we're serious, and developing a more consistent, strong following. I have several serious members out of our 10 member team, but I need a fully dedicated team and I believe getting noticed more will help attract the more desirable developers.
So. Where do I start? Where do I look? How do I get our 50 page, 14,000 word, focused Game Design Document in the hands of some reputable judges and see a fair return if we win? I think the info could help many others as well.
If you're interested in the game, The Undead Castle is a zombie game based 3000+ years into the future. A religious group called the Devotion suppresses advancements in technology, seeing them as a hinderance to human development. They use medieval ways of living, slightly combined with our modern styles, but not our modern ways of life (no phones, no tech, etc.). There's so much more, but that'll do for this post.
I'm open to any feedback and advice for the GDD Contest questions. Please help!
