The team should be 1 to 6 people, so you can go as a lone wolf or gather together with your friends!

You don’t need to declare your team prior to the event unless specified otherwise in particular task’s terms.

Read the requirements of the task you want to work on, if you agree with them, proceed. If you’re lost or not sure what to do, contact our mentors through our Discord channels and ask for advice!

No problem with that! You can work alone but…

If you want to form a team there are a few ways to find team members:

  • register to our Discord where’s a special channel for attendees looking to join or form a new team
  • talk to your friends or university buddies! Tell them about the cause, we’re sure they’ll join you!
  • you can find your team on site - right after the tasks' details announcement, the teambuilding zone will start. HackYeah participants who do not have their own team yet will meet there.

If you’re impatient you can start looking for your teammates just now on HackYeah Discord.

Yes! Just make sure that your team leader mentioned you during uploading the project.

Sure, you can change your team as many times as you want. Just make sure to be a member of one when you upload the project, this is the final declaration of who is in your squad.

Yes! Your team leader adds the crew members during uploading the project – he just needs to type members’ data and Discord ID’s. Then, as long as the system is open and works, the team leader can edit your crew members, which means that he can also add a new member. Only team leaders can do this.

Yes! As long as the system is open and works, the team leader can edit your crew members, which means that he can also remove someone. Only team leaders can do this.

Your team leader declares the name of a team while uploading the project - before that time you can change the name as many times as you want 🙂 

Remember! After uploading the project you can edit the project (i.e. project name, members, attachments) but not the team name!


There are 2 categories of them: Open Tasks and Partners’ Tasks.

Within Open Tasks, the direction in which you’ll go is completely up to you! We are not giving you many details on the tasks, you will need to decide how you understand and want to interpret it.
Partners’ Tasks are more specific. Before you start looking for solutions, please read carefully the terms of the specific Partner’s Task. They all have special requirements and regulations so make sure to study them before starting (here).

Feel free to talk to our Mentors and Partners on our Discord channels and ask them for advice. How about organizing a brainstorm with other HackYeah attendees?

Each of the tasks will have separate rules regarding evaluation. 

For the Open Tasks the judges will judge according to the following criteria:

  • Idea & Innovation - 30%
  • Relation to Category - 20%
  • Practical Applicability / Usability - 20%
  • Design - 20%
  • Completeness & Implementation Value - 10%

For the Partners’ tasks please read terms of the specific task.

Prizes within each tasks are listed in Tasks&Prizes section.

Sure thing! There are no limits – your team can solve as many tasks as you wish. Remember - you can submit only one project in each category (task!)

Each task has individual requirements and specifications, so it is really hard to create "one project to fit them all". Also, you have to remember about copyrights, as some tasks will require a transfer (for winners) and you cannot do it for two different tasks. So while technically possible, we strongly discourage submitting one project to more than one category.

You choose the task while submitting your project in ‘Category’ field so you don’t have to click anywhere before.

No, if you don’t like what you came up with it is not mandatory to upload it. Yet we still encourage you to try as maybe the judges will see something in it that you don’t see!

It depends on the task.

Some Partners’ Tasks might require you to transfer the rights after you accept the prize. To make sure what the regulations are in your task, check the rules of it. You will find a link with regulations next to the task description.

You should upload it to the platform required by the terms of the task. Each of the Tasks may have different regulations, so check the rules in the Task&Prizes section.

The deadline is the deadline. You cannot bend it and cannot break it so better make sure everything is ready a few minutes earlier so you don't miss it!

If you make it to the Final, then yes. The jury chooses the best teams from each task and invites them to pitch their ideas one by one. Remember, only one member of the team will be presenting in front of the jury.

Once the jury board chooses the list of teams that qualified to the pitches, we will announce it on our Discord.

All participants receive details about all tasks only at the beginning of the event. If you wish to use any previously completed or external resources, tools, repositories etc. you must fairly cite or note that in your presentation, code etc.

Upload your project to the platform required for the task. Check the task descriptions to learn where to upload your project. 

Finished early?

  • If you feel like your project might win, start thinking about your pitch presentation.
  • Start another task! There is no limit on how many you can fulfill!

You’re tired and don’t feel like doing anything? Chill a bit, visit partners booths, meet more people!  This edition in Kraków will be awesome!

You can use generally available external resources - both paid and free. Remember to fairly indicate it in your submission.
Keep in mind that using a paid asset will not give you an advantage when evaluating.


The deadline passes at 12 PM on Sunday. Sharp! But… don’t leave it for the last moment, the platform is rock solid but imagine a lot of people will try to upload their solutions all at once… It might lead to an accidental DDOS attack. 

Please remember, that you have to create your Discord account before uploading the project (Discord ID’s are required).

Prepare it in any program you want but ensure it may be displayed in any browser or saved as PDF.

Not all judges will have PowerPoint, Keynote, or whatever you use, but they can open PDF files or any browser.

Include brief description of your idea and highlight the details you believe are crucial. Present the most important mock-ups and screenshots you have. Let it be an online pitch of your project - concise, specific but amazing!

It should be a short description (let’s say 3 paragraphs max). Tell the judges what is the problem you are solving, how you want to solve it, how the project is supposed to work. Remember that the judges have to evaluate plenty of projects, so they don’t have the time to read your 5-page essay 😉

Each of the Tasks may have different regulations, so check the requirements in the Task&Prizes section.

Please put it all in one repository that can be checked out online (GitHub, Bitbucket, Gitlab, etc), if your code consists of a few modules (API, web, mobile) you can place them in separate folders.

Please make sure that you allow Judges the access to the repository. Your repository settings should allow us to review the content.

Add anything let the jury see the full picture of your project, e.q.: mock-ups, simulations, sketches, prototypes, screenshots etc.


A mentor is a specialist in a specific field, whose task during a hackathon is to support a participant in working on a project by sharing his or her knowledge and experience and encouraging discussion among participants. Mentors can be representatives of the partner who authored the task or completely independent specialists.

In practice, the mentor answers questions asked by the participant, which can range from strictly technical ones related to, for example, the programming language, to substantive ones related to data published by the partner or the validity of the proposed solutions, to general, informal questions such as: "does this even make sense?" or related to the presentation of the idea itself.

The mentor's support consists of helping the participant refine the idea, and when the participant gets lost or "stuck" - guiding them on the right track.

Mentors' support is also appreciated when conducting team building. With a broader perspective, mentors often help participants assemble into teams equipped with the right skills and knowledge.

It's simple! Just fill out the application form
Point out your fields of specialization and strengths. describe how you can mentor our attendees. Let us know you! 🙂

Mentors always have a special space in the hackathon. In Tauron Arena Kraków you can meet a mentor on level 0, next to the main coding zone - it will be tagged as "Mentors Village" 🙂

Apart from the above, you can find mentors on Discord. Feel free to ask questions in the specific task channel or send them a direct message. Mentors have a "MENTOR |" prefix in their display names and are tagged by the green role "Mentor".

We don't require knowledge of the language at a certain level confirmed by a certificate. However, you need to remember that among the participants of HackYeah there are people of different nationalities and their percentage is growing every year. 

It may happen that you will be asked a question by an English-speaking participant - the most important thing is to be able to communicate with him/her 🙂


The conference takes place on Saturday (28 Sep) afternoon in Tauron Arena Kraków. Lecture rooms will be located on B level. We'll prepare signs so you won't miss it!

We focus on the OPEN TASKS topics: Artificial Intelligence, Cybersecurity, Education, Gamedev, Finance, and ​Wellness & Activities. Our Experts and Partners will also provide some technical lectures.

We won't record the lectures so remember to check the agenda, pick your favorite lectures, and be there with us live!

Send your proposition using the following application form: https://hackyeah.pl/become-a-speaker/

The application deadline is July 31st!
