A hackathon is a competition designed to encourage participants to apply their knowledge, creativity and skills towards solving a problem through a piece of software (like an application) that addresses the problem, for a business or organization.

CodeChef not only hosts your hackathons but widens your reach to our user-base. We help you find and create strong networks of students and professionals, as well as gain traction among young Indian techies.


  • Registrations of hackathons can have a custom form to be filled by the users.
  • You can define your problem statement, which can have multiple categories as well.
  • Problem page will have all descriptions related to problems and all the steps to be followed while making a submission. For example:
    • Description of the problem
    • Category
    • Judging criteria*
  • Submit page will be a form with fields that can be customized while setting a hackathon contest.
  • There can be multiple judges.

*NB: Unlike programming contests, Hackathons require manual judging. CodeChef provides judging as well as problem setting assistance as value added services.
