______________________________________________

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. 

 

Previously Created Projects/designs ARE accepted, as long as you can provide proof of creation. 

 

1) Build and submit your prototype/solution on DevPost 

You need to show proof of a solution 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, 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)

 

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

The video submission requires to have at least one of your team members to 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
