Submission checklist

Before the deadline passes, make sure you run through this list:

  • Are you submitting a functioning Alexa skill that uses Alexa Conversations?
  • Have you created a submission video? Does your video meet the competition guidelines? Does your video clearly demonstrate how your skill uses Alexa Conversations? Is it no more than five minutes long? (See our video-making best practices.)
  • Have you submitted your skill to the Alexa Skill Store for certification? (Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to do that.)
  • Have you met the requirements? Remember: Skills must integrate Alexa Conversations!

Good luck - we can’t wait to see your skill!


If you have any questions about the hackathon, please post on the discussion forum.
