Microsoft and Eedi will provide more than $5,000 cash prize in total for the competition. There will be $1,000 prizes awarded to the winning team for each task. In addition, a $1,000 prize for the overall winner across all tasks will be awarded, as determined by the team’s average rank across each competition task (smallest average rank wins). If a team hasn’t submitted a working solution to a particular task, their rank for that task will be considered to be equal to the number of entrants across all tasks in total.
In the event of a tie, this prize will be split evenly between the tied teams.
Restriction of eligibility for the prize may apply. More information to come.
