Eligibility

To take part in the Hackathon, it is necessary to register and complete the application form. Applications are open from May 21, 2018, to June 3, 2018 (by noon, CEST). The Organizer reserves the right to prolong or shorten the application period without prior notice. The Participants must be at least 18 years old and legal residents of Member States of the EU (see https://europa.eu/european-union/about-eu/countries_en) or Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, the Republic of Serbia and Kosovo.

Incomplete application forms and/or forms containing false information will result in the expulsion of the Participant and/or the team from the Hackathon.

Participants may apply as a team or as individuals.

Participants who apply in teams have to inform the Organizer that they are applying as a team via the online application (field: Team or Individual in the Application form) and include the names of the other team members. However, each team member must register individually.

Each team must be multidisciplinary and composed of 4-6 persons of different profiles. Each team must include the following profiles:

  • Team leader - 1 person
  • (Digital) marketing specialist - 1 person
  • Designer - 1 person

Other individuals may be of random profiles but must have enough skills to compete by solving an actual business case. It’s recommended for a tech specialist (developer or other similar profile) to be included in the team.

Each team must be prepared to accept additional members that the Organizer might assign to them.

Participants who apply as individuals will be assigned to new or existing teams by the Organizer at its sole discretion. The final number of team members may vary from team to team.

The Organizer reserves the right to cancel the Hackathon without prior notice at its sole discretion.
