Competition and Prizes
Hack for Gävle requires all participants to be present at the venue to enable a creative environment and networking. Teams may have individual members participating remotely. This needs to be communicated to the organizer beforehand.
All contest entries must be in english and will be “pitched” by the respective teams to our jury (5 min). Contributions must also be submitted on our slack channel and e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org at the latest on 16th Feb by 09:30 and must contain:

We will use slack and set up a general group for all participants/stakeholders. In addition, we will create channels for categories like Jury, Coaches, F&Q etc. We would like to see each team create a subgroup.
