LifeHack 2022 is a hackathon aimed to channel the creativity, drive, and skills of the participants in the software development field. Participants are expected to develop intelligent solutions in response to the problem statements presented during the competition. The event is mostly held online, with the exception of the closing day.

There will be 3 themes for participants to choose from:

  • Giving Back
  • Environment
  • Safety



What to submit?

  • Participants are free to submit any software hack - be it a web app, mobile app, bot, etc.
  • Hardware hacks are not accepted as it is difficult for judges to be able to test the functionality of the project.
  • Participants can submit a demo/ pitch video of their hack to showcase their creation. (Optional)

Where to submit?

  • Upload your hack onto GitHub and make it a PUBLIC repository so that judges will be able to view your solution.
  • Then submit your GitHub repo links under the "Try it out" section on the submission page.

How to submit?

  • For the Project Title, set it as your team name.
  • For the Elevator Pitch, do mention the name of your project!
  • Refer to slides sent out on the telegram announcement channel.
