22 hours before the submission deadline

Hey builders,

Time to set your project pages up! We're closing the submissions on 9AM tomorrow, and you won't be able to make any edits before the winners' announcement.

Here's how the judging works:

  1. Pagoda devs will filter the eligible submissions (take a look at the eligibility criteria here)
  2. The judges will review the remaining submissions to choose the winning teams
  3. Top-10 teams will be invited to pitch live at the Dragon's Den with Illia Polosukhin and Alex Shevchenko

The winners will be announced tomorrow, so please join us at the NEARCON Warehouse and keep an eye out…
