HackerNoon Announces Four New Technology Writing Contests With $28K in Prizes Up for Grabs

HackerNoon, the independent publishing platform, announced four new Writing Contests for the tech community in partnership with IONOS, Tatum Games, Aptible, and GadflyAI. 

The contests are part of HackerNoon’s larger initiative to incentivize writers to share cutting-edge technology stories. To date, HackerNoon has distributed $276,000 in prizes via 24 different contests on a variety of tech topics generating thousands of high-quality stories, millions of reads, and years of reading time.

The running writing contests cover diverse tech domains and topics, including Web DevelopmentUnity Game DevelopmentDevOps, and the Future of AI – collectively giving away $28,000 in prizes. These contests began in July 2023 and will run until Jan. 2024.

“Incentivizing content creation is a sustainable way to market to people who care about the company’s relevant technology keywords,” said HackerNoon Creator and CEO David Smooke. “Excited to read the upcoming stories these contests generate about DevOps, the Future of AI, Unity, Web Development and more.”

Entry is free and open to anyone; however, to qualify for the contest, participants should share original and high-quality content. HackerNoon is a free-to-use, open-to-everyone publishing platform with an acceptance rate of <50%.

Finalists are determined on quality and reading time, and then HackerNoon editors vote on which of the finalists deserve prizes. Both the finalists and the winners are announced every month. Each contest has monthly individual prize amounts ranging from $1,000 to $1,500.
