Quick-start guide



It’s time to get started with the Amazon Sumerian AR/VR Challenge! Once you have officially registered (if you haven’t done so already) we’ll be sending you regular updates throughout the competition. Submissions are due January 8, 2019 at 5:00pm ET.

  1. Sign up for an AWS account. If you don’t have an AWS account yet, sign up for one- the 12-month trial is free.
  2. Get set up right. Create a Cognito ID (here’s how)
  3. Review the rules. Thoroughly read the competition rules to ensure your submission complies.
  4. Start Building. Create your application / scene experience in one of the listed categories.
  5. Get a head start on your submission. Fill out the basic fields on the application form and familiarize yourself with the submission requirements. Your submission will include a written description of the app, use case, benefits/utility, operations instructions as well as a video demonstrating the functionality of the application. Remember: you can edit your submission as many times as you like before the deadline.
  6. Join the Sumerian Slack channel and head to #hackathon, where you can ask questions, meet, and chat with other hackers.


If you have any questions about the hackathon, please post on the discussion forum.
