Deadline is 1st October 2010.

It’s open to professionals and amateurs, the game must be less than 4 hours long and the team must be smaller than 16. Entries are allowed from anywhere in the world.

The winners will be shown at DICE 2011.

But there’s a $100 entry fee. Yuck. Yuck. Yuck. I don’t believe you can call something an Indie Game challenge if you have to pay for it. On principle, I slightly struggle to even promote it. But it exists, and if you can stomach the idea of paying for an entry, go check it out.
