Who can apply?
Everyone can participate in HINT 3.0. Though we shall need a consent from your parents approving your participation if you're under 18 years of age.
Can we apply as a team?
Yes! This hackathon is strictly a team competition. We believe that you’re stronger as a team than you are apart. You can join or create a team once you've started an individual application.
What if I don’t have a team or an idea?
Not to worry, most people don’t! We’ll have team formation and ideation events geared towards helping you find people to work with.
What if I don’t want to present my hack?
Unfinished or unimpressive (so you think) projects should be presented anyway! Presenting your hack gives you a chance to be proud of what you’ve done, and a constructive perspective of where you should be headed next.
How to reach IIIT-Allahabad?
Allahabad is well connected to all major cities of India by train. The airport at Allahabad has a daily flight to Delhi. Varansi International Airport is a 3 hour drive from Allahabad while Lucknow International Airport is 5 hours away.
Do we provide travel cost?
We can’t guarantee reimbursements for everyone, but we don’t want money to keep you from experiencing HINT. You’ll get a reimbursement amount along with your invitation. Let us know if you still need help making your way to Allahabad and we’ll see what we can do.
Are there prizes for girl teams?
HINT has always been a huge supporter of gender equality. Thus we have swag exclusively for girls to promote and encourage them.
