We are excited to announce prizes for the CreatorCon 2020 Virtual Hackathon! The Grand Prize winning team will receive $5,000 in Visa gift cards distributed evenly across team members and the four second-place teams will each receive $500 Visa gift cards for a total of $7,000 in prizes. Keep reading for more details on how this will work, and the official rules and information can be found on the Hackathon page.

Hackathon Categories

Each team participating in the hackathon will be required to build their application to solve a business problem in one of the following five categories:

  • Healthcare
  • Telecom
  • Manufacturing
  • Banking
  • Social Good

Teams will need to record a five-minute video demoing and explaining their application, and upload it by 11:59 PM EDT on May 3rd.

Category Winners - Semifinals

All of the submitted applications will be judged and scored on Monday, May 4th, and the teams with the highest app submission score in each category will win that category and move on to the finals. One of these 5 teams will be crowned the Grand Prize Winner and the other four will receive the second place prizes.

Grand Prize Winner - Finals

A representative from each Hackathon category winning team will be required to join a zoom call on the morning (AMS) of Wednesday, May 6th and pitch their app to a panel of judges. The judges will have the opportunity to ask questions and then will deliberate and choose a grand prize winner. This session will be edited and shown at CreatorCon to announce the winners the week of May 11th.
