Your invite to the Makers Festival

Last year we ran our first ever hackathon online with over 4,000 makers participating from all over the world. 🌎

This year we’re calling our 2018 hackathon a Makers Festival, welcoming all types of makers to build together over Thanksgiving week. It’s a chance to connect with other makers to solve interesting problems, challenge yourselves to create something from scratch and win your very own kitty award (more on that later). 😉

Who is Makers Festival for?

Makers Festival is for everyone! Not just coders. All types of Makers and Creators are welcome to participate: Designers, photographers, illustrators, artists, writers, videographers, etc.

What can you make?

You can make anything — it doesn’t have to be an app, bot or website. It might be an e-book, interview series, photography collection, a painting, a song, etc.

Rules:

* There's no restriction on team size
* All participants must sign up here
* All participants must complete all three assignments (Project page, Upcoming page and Medium post)
* All participants must complete their submission form by November 24 at 11pm PST
* Winners will be chosen by the Product Hunt community with our team’s input, and the winners will be announced on November 26 right here in the Product Hunt newsletter 🙌
