Everyone is welcome to apply, be it students, professionals or turing-test certified androids. If you are under 18 years of age, we’ll need a parental consent form.

The application period will close on July 31st at 11:59 pm (IST). We evaluate applications on a rolling basis and acceptances will be sent every weekend via email. Once accepted, you’ll have three days to confirm your attendance.

UPDATE: The hackathon applications are now closed.

We’re looking for people who "do"! Folks who are passionate enough to work on crazy world-changing ideas. Tell us what makes you apply to ETHIndia, what excites you, accomplishments you are proud of and whatever else you think can strengthen your chances of acceptance. We’ll get to know more about your abilities from the past projects, GitHub profile, participation/awards in other hackathons.

Zero. Zip. Zilch. Nada. Nothing. Admission to ETHIndia is completely free, thanks to our sponsors! We'll provide you with a weekend's worth of schwag, meals, drinks, snacks and a place to crash when you need a break from coding.

Yes! This hackathon is strictly a team competition. We believe that you’re stronger as a team than you are apart. You can join or create a team once you've started an individual application.

You can form teams of up to 3 people. Most teams aim to have a mix of people with both design and developer skills.

Not to worry, most people don’t! We’ll have team formation and ideation events geared towards helping you find people to work with. You can join our Slack to find potential teammates.

A valid government issued photo ID, laptop, phone, chargers, any sleeping equipment you might want (we'll be providing mattresses) and a geeky t-shirt!

Weapons of any kind, drugs, or alcohol. If you’re not sure whether something will be okay, please ask ahead of time!

Yes! Once accepted, you will have to submit your travel reimbursement forms and receipts on the Dashboard. For each location hackers travel from, we’ll determine a reasonable cap. We will reimburse travel costs up to this cap only.

Note: Hackers travelling from outside India & in need of travel reimbursement assistance should send us an email at Decisions will be made on a case-by-case basis, and are subject to funding availability.

A panel of some of the biggest names in tech will evaluate hacks based on creativity, technical difficulty, design, and usefulness. The top 10 overall projects will demo what they have built in front of all of ETHIndia during our closing ceremonies. New judges will be announced on a rolling basis on Twitter and Facebook, so make sure to follow us!

Yes, tech talks + workshops tickets are available to the general public as well. Grab one now until they last!
