Requirements

Submissions for the hackathon are not restricted to a specific type. Websites, apps, machine learning algorithms, design files, presentations of ideas, etc. are all fair game. Final submissions can include various materials, including but not limited to video demos, Github repository of your code, APK files, link to a hosted website, files of a mockup design, PPT explaining your idea, etc.

In general, functioning prototypes or code-based projects will be judged more highly than simple design files; however, all submissions will be taken into consideration and there are special prizes for different types of submissions.

You may submit any supporting material you think is suitable. For example, if your project is an AI algorithm you may submit a Jupyter notebook and a video demo.
