Prizes

And how to win them...

Judging Criteria

Originality

Is the hack more than just another generic social/mobile/web/IoT solution? Does it do something entirely novel, or at least take a fresh approach to an old problem?

Technical Difficulty

Is the hack technically interesting or difficult? Is it just some lipstick on an API, or were there any technical challenges to surmount when building it?

Polish and Design

Is the hack usable in its current state? Does it work as the creators say? Is the user experience smooth? Is it well designed for the target audience? Our judges will want to see and use your prototype - so make sure it works!

Usefulness

Is it something people would actually use? Does it fulfil a real need that the community, the broader society or the target audience has? You do not need to prepare a business plan, but you should at least identify who is your target audience.

What is UNIHACK?

We are Australia’s largest student hackathon. We bring together a diverse range of students to collaborate and bring innovative ideas to life - fostering the next generation of developers, thinkers, and entrepreneurs.

In a team of 4-6, build your idea (an app, website, device or anything really!), pitch it, and win prizes. We will provide you with the mentors, workshops, and plenty of food and drinks to keep you going!
