Selected official applicants will be chosen to receive the "Kit" listed above; these successful applicants will be our sponsored challengers. The sponsored challengers must use the Raspberry Pi Pico within their project, and publish their final code and designs on the Community for others to use. Those not chosen as sponsored challengers may also join the competition and be eligible to win prizes, but they must base their projects around the Raspberry Pi Pico and adhere to all terms and conditions of the challenge.
Applicants must post their progress and final project as at least 5 blog posts before the closing date (see above), when projects are due. Challengers are strongly encouraged to post their blogs regularly during the contest period, rather than posting them all close to the finish of the competition.
Projects that use the Raspberry Pi Pico most creatively, along with posts that are media rich with photos, videos, and code samples will be viewed more favorably in the judging process.
Please read the full terms and conditions of the challenge, attached below.

If you are not successful in becoming a sponsored challenger, but still want to enter, all you need to do is use the Raspberry Pi Pico as described above in your project and adhere to the same Terms and Conditions for a chance to be our winner! Non-sponsored challengers are eligible for the Finisher and Winner Prizes, as well.
