General topic/project guide information:
This year, our focus is on creativity, productivity, and effectiveness. However, hackers are free to build all types of ideas, as this is an extremely open-ended event. 

Build and submit your prototype/solution on Devpost 

When submitting your project to devpost, please include the following:

  1. Any files you would like to upload including valuable information about your project

  2. Any links/urls you would like to include (working demo, video, github page, figma share) 

  3. Contact email address you check regularly

  4. Country location (This will help us determine eligibility for shipping prizes)

  5. Please also include a description of your project & the issue(s) it helps solve.

Essentially, include anything else in the project description you would like the judges to see


You need to show proof of a solution or a prototype for this hackathon. The prototype can be anything you want it to be, as long as it succeeds in showing what your product goal is (e.g. design, clickable prototype, mobile app, web app, video of an app on a simulator, mockup..)

To show proof of your prototype, you must upload it on Devpost to the submission form. 

Please also add proof of coding/programming (if applicable)

You may use any programming language, framework, library you want! - whatever tools you feel comfortable with.


Project Pitching Options:

We offer 2 different pitching options for project submissions. Choose whatever is best for your team.


Option 1 -  (Recommended) LIVE Pitching session in front of the judging panel 

  • Zoom conference details for the live pitching session will be posted to the devpost page, our website & communicated to participants via email prior to the event start date. 

The LIVE pitching session requires at least one of your team members to speak about your product in front of the judging panel/other hackers.This is definitely a better pitching option if you are looking to get your judges attention and receive proper comments. Here are a few suggestions and recommendations on what your pitch could include:

1.      Slideshow with information about your project to screen share during your pitch.

2.      Prototype or a figma design of your project. 

3.      Live working demonstration of your program running. (you can use emulator/simulator)



Option 2 - Submit a 2-3-min pitch video explaining your solution on DevPost. 

  • Video will be reviewed by our judges after all live pitching has concluded.

The video submission requires you to have at least one of your team members speak about your product. That means that your video presentation needs to have a voice over. You are welcome to show your faces, but it is not required. You need to submit the video presentation through DevPost. The format of your video is for you to decide. Here are some suggestions: 

1.      Screen Recording of your program with voiceover 

2.      PowerPoint with voice over 

3.      Video of your program running on an emulator/simulator with voice over
