What is Digital HackFair?

Digital HackFair is a contest where new and experienced developers can submit a impact-focused app built using Flutter. It’s a fun way to learn Flutter, try building out interfaces, and possibly win prizes.

What is Flutter?

Glad you asked. Flutter is Google’s UI toolkit for building beautiful, natively compiled applications for mobile, web, and desktop from a single codebase.

Get started with Flutter: https://flutter.dev/docs/get-started/install

Does it have to be a mobile app?

Yes! While Flutter allows you to build apps for web and other platforms, for this contest we are strictly looking for submissions in form of Flutter mobile apps.

How will the winners be selected?

There are 2 phases to this hackathon.

  1. Online Hackathon: During the submission phase (open from Jan 20, 2020 to Feb 20, 2020) developers can submit their apps.
  2. Pitching: Top 15 app developers will be selected by online judges to appear for in-person pitching at Telenor 345 to compete for the prize money.

What type of Flutter apps are eligible?

Any app that is impact focused and relates to one of the 8 available categories is eligible for submission: 

(1) FinTech (2) Connectivity (3) Agri (4) Gender (5) Education (6) Health (7) Environment (8) Safety

What if my submission relates to more than one category?

That’s fine. We understand that you might have a project that cuts through multiple categories but we encourage you to pick the best category for submission of your solution.

Can I submit more than one entry?

We limit entries to one project per DevPost account. We encourage you to submit your best entry!

Can a team of people submit a single project?

A team of people can submit a single project, but the person submitting the project through DevPost should be authorized to submit the project on behalf of the entire team and this person will be responsible for representing the team in case the project gets shortlisted for pitching.

If I have more questions, where should I go?

Feel free to post any questions in the discussion forums and we will get back to you.
