Two weeks to go—submit early!

It’s getting close!  There are two weeks left to submit your Amazon Sumerian powered application. Submissions are due January 8, 2019 before 5pm ET. (Find out what time that is in your city)

If you haven't started a submission yet, please do so now. (We’ll walk you through our submission form process if you need help.) And if you've just recently joined the challenge, explore the quick-start guide and browse the Resources page.

Submission checklist

Before the deadline passes, make sure you run through this list:

  • Are you submitting a functioning application/experience powered by Amazon Sumerian?
  • Have you created a submission video? Does your video meet the competition guidelines? Does your video clearly demonstrate how your application works? Is it no more than five minutes long? (See our video-making best practices.)
  • Does your application fit into one of the following categories: Education, Training, and Simulations; Brand Engagement and Retail; Entertainment, Hospitality and Media; Other (new product/service, etc)

Be sure to read through the official rules more than once. Or better yet, have a friend or colleague provide a second pair of eyes to make sure you didn’t miss anything.

Good luck!


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