FAQ

General


Did I win the competition? When will I receive my prize?

If you are a winner, we will contact you directly via email to arrange the shipment of your prize.

I submitted my project but it says "Awaiting moderation". Will it affect my eligibility?
As long as you submit your project before the deadline it doesn't matter when it is moderated. Just sit back and enjoy a well deserved break!
I was notified that I was selected to receive one of free Intel Hardware Kits. When will I receive it?
We will notify you via email when free Intel Hardware Kits are shipped. If you haven't received an email yet, we haven't yet shipped it. Be aware that once you receive the initial notification, it may still be a few weeks until you receive the shipment notification.
My project is locked and I can't edit it anymore. Why is that?
All projects entered in the competition are locked after the submission deadline to ensure that they remain the same during the judging process. They are then unlocked after winners are announced.
Somebody copied my entry! What can I do?
When judging entries, we take into account the submission date. When an entry is clearly plagiarized from another, we favor the original entry; however, we might favor a newer entry if it is considerably better than the original. If you believe the result of the judging is unfair, please email us at help@hackster.io to appeal.
What are the prizes?
