WHAT IS DC3+

The Digital Content Creators Challenge – DC3 (formerly known as IPCC / DICE) is a platform for local talents to hone their creativity and ability to develop new content ideas. Its main purpose is to help accelerate the development and commercialisation of these concepts and transform them into world-class digital content.

As for the PENJANA powered Digital Content Creators Challenge (DC3+) programme, it will be unique as this updated initiative is looking for IPs with a thematic content that can either be commercial in nature or have a strong message to share.

The DC3+ programme is themed around the concept of “Malaysiana”, e.g. Malaysian stories, folklores, being set in or is identifiable as Malaysian, carries a strong relevance to our culture, period or contemporary social commentary or any combination of the above.

Unlike the regular DC3, the new DC3+ programme does not have a structured developmental mentorship. Instead, it will work with experienced local industry partners that can aid the success of your IP.
