IFComp 2024 Now Accepting Intents & Entries

Hello, everyone, and happy (slightly belated) start of July! With a new July comes a new season of the Interactive Fiction Competition!

From now through August 1st, 11:59pm Eastern (23:59 EST), the IF Comp website will be open for authors to declare their intent to enter this year’s competition!

(Final entries are due on August 28th, 11:59pm Eastern, but you must register by August 1st! That’s right… everything is one month earlier this year! If you miss it, there’s always 2025… If you register and then can’t complete your game in time, you may always back out of the competition and enter the game elsewhere or next year.)

As with the previous iterations of the IFComp, authors will be allowed to participate as judges, vote, and review entries other than their own.

If you have any questions about the competition or its rules, you can contact us at ifcomp@ifcomp.org

In addition to entries, we are also accepting prizes to award contestants! If you would like to donate a prize for this year’s competition, you can email us at prizes@ifcomp.org — no prize is too humble or too grand.

If you would prefer to donate money, our Colossal Fundraiser will launch by August. Another announcement will be made then.

Thank you, everyone. We’re looking forward to another fun year.
