Web Monetization category with cash prizes

Third year of the Web Monetization category in the js13kGames competition is introducing cash prizes for best entries with the total amount of $1300.

After the first edition debuting in 2019, and the second in 2020 offering Nintendo Switch as the main prize, the third one now will give away cash for best entries. This was very well received during this year’s Web Monetization category in the Gamedev.js Jam 2021 - the category revolved around monetizing stuff after all, so it made perfect sense.

This year top 10 entries will be awarded with USD, and the winner will take almost half of the total amount:

- 1st place: $600
- 2nd place: $300
- 3rd place: $150
- 4th place: $75
- 5th place: $50
- 6th-10th places: $25

We’re lucky to be supported by the Grant for the Web program promoting Web Monetization API to developers and users around the world, which we’re happily helping with. Thanks to Coil we’ll also offer physical swag for best entries, and Coil memberships for 6 months to every participant, no matter if they plan on joining the Web Monetization category or not.

If you need some inspiration, then remember that all the Web Monetized entries from 2019 and from 2020 can be played on the js13kGames website, and their source code is available on GitHub. If you plan on participating, make sure to check the rules of the category, and if you have any questions feel free to get in touch, we’re more than happy to help!
