Pitch Video Guidelines

DOs

Icon
Keep your video under three minutes!

Videos over three minutes will not be accepted.

Icon
Your video is just a pitch of your concept.

You don’t need to provide an extensive explanation or provide in-depth research.

Icon
Provide a high-level overview of the project.

Be sure to include what market you’re solving a problem for and why you’re the best team to do it.

Icon
Include as many team members in the video as possible.

This helps us get to know everyone! It’s not mandatory that you all are in the same place.

Icon
Rehearse the video before you shoot the final version.

You only get one pitch video, so give it your best shot.

Icon
Play the video back to yourself and check for good audio quality.
Icon
Fill out the Application Form with your Team Info.
Icon
Submit the Video in English, or with English subtitles.

Note: At the hackathon we will only be able to support English applications.

DON'Ts

Icon
Don’t mark your video private or disallow embedding.

We won’t be able to see it! Once approved, your video will be added to the EOS Hackathon Website too. Don’t submit multiple pitches. Each person is only allowed one entry and can only be on one team.

Icon
Don’t script your video and memorize every word you want to say.

The community wants to get to know you and your idea and if it’s a great idea your pitch should come naturally.

Icon
Don’t add music or fancy graphics.

We just want to hear from you and your team about who you are and why you have the best dApp idea for the EOSIO platform.

Icon
Don’t include design screenshots or code you have written as part of the video.

Again, we only want to hear from the founders talking about the idea.

Icon
Most importantly, DO NOT start working on your project until the Hackathon – in the spirit of competition, we expect a level playing field for everyone participating!
Videos that do not meet these criteria will not be eligible for the competition.
