Rules and Regulations

  1. Due to the high degree of variance in the projects, the grading will be subjective. Key points we will look for are, concept, implementation, state of completion and code quality (if applicable). Most projects will receive a feedback as well.
  2. You may also submit some other projects (other than the main project) that you have worked on earlier. This is not a necessity, though.
  3. You have to submit a write up (not more than 200 words) for your project detailing why you think it is a good idea and how you went about making it.
  4. All submissions should take place only through the submission form. For code submissions, you will need a Github account to host your project(s) repository. Make sure to add a description in the repository as well.


We have awesome competitions to fuel your passion
