AMENDMENT TO HACKADAY CONTEST OFFICIAL RULES
Hackaday has been hard at work making sure the requirements to qualify for The Hackaday Prize are well understood. Recently we published a FAQ to help answer questions, and we updated the main contest page to make information easier to find. We are also publishing a pair of “walkthrough” videos that show just how easy it is meet these requirements. In light of these clarifications, and the availability of these helpful resources, we have decided to extend the deadline for entries from 8/4/14 to 8/20/14, and to make minor changes to a couple of requirements in the Official Rules. Here’s a summary:
- Contestants must now complete all requirements for the “Community Vote (Stage 1)” and “Quarterfinals (Stage 2)” by 11:50 P.D.T. on August 20, 2014 (rather than August 4, 2014).
- Contestants are no longer required to make one video for the Community Vote stage and another video for the Quarterfinals stage. Instead, only one video – the video described under the “Quarterfinals (Stage 2)” subsection of the Official Rules – is required by the 11:50 P.D.T., August 20, 2014, Quarterfinals deadline.
- Build instructions are no longer required at the Quarterfinals stage.
- Contestants do not need to post any videos, at any point in the contest, to Hackaday’s YouTube channel (although you still need to upload each video to YouTube or Youku and tag it with the keyword provided in the Rules).
We have amended the Official Rules to reflect these changes. Please view them here.
We hope that this will make it easier for you to enter and claim the The Hackaday Prize by showing off your mad electronics skills. You’ve got extra time… get hacking!
