Are you a developer of independent games? If so, I hope that you have got your game on and applied to join the PAX Aus Indie Showcase. This offering provided by Penny Arcade is a great way to show off your new game to a huge audience. There are numerous benefits to getting in on this, the greatest of which is huge amounts of press.
It is important that you look at moving soon though. The deadline for getting your submission in is only 9 days away, the 6th of July. Apply here.
To give you an idea of what is required for you to submit an entry, this is a short abstract which covers the main process:
