·        Participants are not permitted to submit pre-existing projects for the hackathon.

·        You must wait until the hacking officially begins at the event kick-off to start working on your project

·        This means no coding, designing assets, or any other work related to your project should be done beforehand

·        The hackathon submissions will only be judged based on the quality of work completed during the event

·       If a project or team is found to be porting or continuing an existing project, they can still participate but will not be eligible for the finals.

·      Using any pre-existing work (even with approval) will result in disqualification from being considered as a finalist for the hackathon. To ensure that no pre-existing work is included in the submission, you must use version control for your code throughout the event. Any repositories with single commits of large files without proper history will be assumed to be unqualified unless proven otherwise.

·         Participating in a pool prize does not mean that you will win by default, you should check the criteria and the availability of space.
