Help the next wave of Avalanche developers get their start building on the platform

Avalanche has launched a contest for the best developer tutorials to help the next wave of Avalanche developers to build on the platform. Anyone can now submit a tutorial, with selected tutorials being able to win a portion of the $50,000 prize pool.

All selected tutorials will win $1,000. Every tutorial that goes through revision processes and completes Avalanche’s feedback rounds will win additional incentives as outlined on the contest terms & conditions at the bottom of this page. Winners will also be promoted across social media and the Avalanche community.

We can’t wait to see what you have in store!

Contest rules

$50,000 Avalanche Developer Tutorial Contest:

  • Submissions should function as stand-alone tutorials, explaining the step-by-step process of achieving a concrete goal. Developers following the tutorial should have a complete understanding of how to repeat the task in their own development process.
  • Steps in the process should be clear, with concrete code examples that can be copied and reused.
  • Every newly introduced term should be explained in the tutorial. General programming knowledge is presumed.


  • Round 1: Aug 2nd — Aug 9th (12AM EST)
  • Round 2: Aug 17th — Aug 24th (12AM EST)

How It Works

There will be two rounds of judging. All submissions accepted for the second round will receive $1K. If you incorporate the feedback you receive from the Avalanche Developer team in round 2, you’ll receive the corresponding prize listed below.

The best Tutorials will be chosen on originality, creativity, simplicity, correctness, accuracy, practical implementation and ease of understanding.

All decisions will be made in Avalanche’s sole discretion and are final.

How To Enter

  1. Choose one of Avalanche’s tutorial subjects below.
  2. Submissions should be in the form of long form text, formatted in Markdown, submitted as a link to the GitHub repository.
  3. Each submission should have an introduction, where the purpose of the tutorial is explained, the main body of the tutorial, and a conclusion with key points highlighted. Use of full Markdown capabilities is encouraged (headings, code blocks, tables).
  4. Extensive usage of links to existing Avalanche tutorials, references and API documentation is encouraged. Illustrations are welcome and valued, as well as a demonstration video.
  5. Submit your contact info and links to your tutorial through this form.
