Why should I join Junction 2022?
Because it will be the most fun 48 hours of your life!
During Junction 2022 you will get to meet a ton of cool people, learn, experiment, and solve a real issue for our partners. It's your chance to get out of your comfort zone and put your skills to the test!
Who can participate?
If you're full of ideas, want to make an impact, are interested in the latest technologies, or even just in a weekend that is better than usual... then this hackathon is for you!
Junction 2022 is open for everyone, regardless of skillset and background. You can participate by yourself or with a team of max. 5 members. Like all of our events, participation is free of charge.
What's the application process?
You can apply on Junction App! It's the platform we created to host our events. Junction App is also the place where you can confirm your spot for the hackathon, submit your solution, review other projects, and even receive your participation certificate.
You'll have many occasions to apply! The Early Bird application period will be July 18.-30., applicants in this batch will have the chance to get travel grants and free accommodation during the hackathon. Regular application period will start September 15 and end October 15.
Our team will accept the best applicants already during the application period. We will try to get back to you within a week from your application!
How will the winner be selected?
Our hackathons have two different types of winners.
Challenge winners are selected by each challenge partner independently, following their own criteria.
The top 10 projects are selected through peer reviewing and the Gavel judging system. The top 10 teams will pitch their projects during the closing ceremony, after that, participants can vote on their favourite. That's how the main winner is selected!
When and where does the event take place?
Junction 2022 takes place November 4.-6. in Dipoli, Espoo. The venue is easily reachable using public transportation!
I am not a coder, can I still join?
Although knowing how to code is a plus, it's not mandatory. Design and business skills are useful additions for a balanced team.
What are the requirements for submissions?
Glad you asked! First of all, all code outside of open source libraries must be written during the event. You must submit a link to your source! If you use any code written specifically for this idea in advance, or work on a new project that is somehow related to an already existing company, you will be disqualified.
The final submission must contain a 2 minute long (and not a single second longer) video pitch of the final project.
Who has ownership of the content created in Junction?
The work done by the participants is owned solely by the participants and their teams.
