How You Get into Play4Agile 2015?
The P4A15 Playpplication!

We’ve completed phase one of our registration for 2015 and received more than 60 #playpplications!

If you register in phase two, here is how it works: Instead of answering three questions, this time we invited everyone to do something creative and send in videos.

There’s no limit to your creativity. We want creative “playpplication” videos that enable people to connect to you, get to know you. Videos which tell the story about why you want to come, and what you want to enjoy. (The video does not need to show you.) Surprise us!

Capture your creativity in a one minute video: Sing a song, write a poem, interview yourself or others, make a collage, draw a visual… Then publish it to YouTube, Vimeo, or similar, and email us a link to your video. We will put it into our new YouTube channel.

Are you looking for inspiration? Check out our playlist: https://www.youtube.com/user/Play4Agile

Send an email with the link for your #playpplication in phase two to orgteam@play4agile.org 

If you want to, tweet the link to your video with #P4A15 and tell the world.

Sponsors: Create a Video too!

You are sponsoring Play4Agile? (Thank you!) Then the video offers you a new, better and additional chance to market your financial support of the community. You are invited to create a playpplication video, too – if you find ideas and time to do it! Then let us and the community know why you want to sponsor and support Play4Agile.
Please indicate in the email you send us, that your video is intended for your sponsoring. We will create a special channel for those videos and tweet your contributions!

Fees and Billing

The price will be less than 350 € including food and accommodation, depending on how much sponsorship we get. You will be invoiced by and pay directly at the venue.
