Rules are important to run a safe and fair hackathon!
Please read the full set of them in our Terms & Conditions. We have summarised a few important ones for you below:
Eligibility criteria. You must live in an EU Member State, Norway, Iceland or Switzerland and be 18 years or older to be eligible for the hackathon competition. Teams must have at least 3 team members, and can go up to a maximum of 8 members.
Everyone is welcome. We welcome all participants regardless of race, creed, colour, ethnicity, nationality, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender expression, age, physical appearance, body size, disability, or marital status.
Be nice to each other. We are dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of race, creed, colour, ethnicity, nationality, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender expression, age, physical appearance, body size, disability, or marital status. We do not tolerate harassment on our platforms in any form.
Use your time and energy to hack solutions to Connect the Arctic, not to make the world a worse place. Activities promoting or related to alcohol, tobacco, religion, politics, intolerance, violence, firearms, pornography, obscenity, gambling, or illegal drugs are explicitly excluded from the hackathon. Just don't. Sexual language and imagery are not appropriate on our platforms.
Fresh code only. To ensure a level field for all contestants, all code must be created by the team, during the Hackathon Weekend. But you are permitted to use publicly available or openly licensed APIs, SDKs, frameworks and other software libraries for your project. Any software development tools and/or programming language can be used.
