Epic Games giving away $5 mln to UE4 developers

Funding

Today we found some pretty awesome news on Engadget...Epic Games is funding new projects and is taking a first step towards as an Academy Awards-inspired system, where past grant winners get to vote on the projects they think deserve funding.
