Do I need to have any relevant experience?

While prior experience in XR isn't mandatory, having some familiarity can certainly enhance your hackathon experience and boost your confidence in tackling the challenges.

How do I register for the hackathon?

You can apply for the XR Creator Con here. We will be reviewing all applications until end of April. Once your application has been approved, you will be able to register for the hackathon. If you have any questions or encounter problems during the application, you can always reach out to us via hello@immersive-insiders.com.

Is there a registration fee for the hackathon?

Yes. The registration fee covers part (30%) of the cost spent for your breakfast and dinner at the event venue. We don't make any profit by charging you this amount. This fee just helps us in making sure that there are only committed people at the XRCC.

Can I form a team prior to the event?

Yes, you can register with an existing team. Alternatively, on Day 1 of the event there will be plenty of time to find your team mates.

Tracks & Prizes

What criteria are used for evaluating the projects?

In short: We'll be looking at your idea's creativity, how well you implement it, and the potential impact it could have. You can find the detailed judging criteria here.

What are the prizes for winning projects?

Prizes will be announced soon. What we can say right now: The most promising participants will have the chance to join the Meta Start Program and receive $50,000 in funding from Meta to bring their vision to life.

Can participants work on projects outside of the defined tracks?

Technically yes, but we recommend sticking to the tracks. This way the judges can properly evaluate your project and you increase your chance of winning.


Is there a detailed agenda for each day of the hackathon?

Sure thing, you can head over to our Schedule page to look at a detailed agenda.

Can participants access the venue 24/7?

Yes. At night, you will have to ring the bell, show your lanyard at the entrance and you're good to go.

How do I sign up for workshops, and is there an additional cost?
