Devpost Achievements

Submitting to this hackathon could earn you:

Eligibility

Students over the age of 18, or graduates who graduated within the last 12 months.

Requirements

The theme is Enhancing city life through interdisciplinary solutions. The best submissions will solve a Durham City problem with a novel solution.

However, hacks that don't follow this theme are also very welcome - and we'll judge these based upon how good the idea is, their implementation, and how well-polished your hack is.

How to enter

Sign-up has now closed, but there is still space on the day for hackers to come. Don't worry if you're late - we'll be able to squeeze you in!
