Lights, Camera, Action! Submission video tips for hackers

We know as devs and innovators, your expertise normally lies behind the scenes, but the submission video needs time and care too! It's often the first (and sometimes only!) thing that judges review. Your video tells the story behind your project, providing a clear avenue to showcase your software and talent. 

 

Prep your elevator pitch and don’t forget to include:

  • how your project meets the hackathon requirements
  • tools you used
  • problem your project addresses
  • solution your project addresses 
  • demo your project in a way that shows judges how real-world users will interact and benefit from it!
