Event description


We are looking for female developers and creatives to take part in a special 100 Women hackathon.

100 Women is a series of programmes, features and interviews based around a list of 100 inspirational global women, named by the BBC every year. You can see the highlights of the 2015 season here www.bbc.co.uk/100women 

The challenge for this hack event is to produce a social media product in the form of a prototype that could be used to launch this year’s 100 Women season. The successful team or individual will be awarded up to 2 weeks paid development time and mentored by a BBC developer to further develop the prototype from the event.

You can take part as an individual, a pair or in teams of three. Just remember, you should be able to develop and build the prototype whichever option you choose, so be sure you have a developer in your team.

We'll have talks and experts from BBC and Facebook to answer questions and help you along the way.

Please register above if you'd like to join and send us two examples of your work related to the brief and why you want to take part. This could include links to past projects. We'll confirm your place directly on a first come, first served basis, once we're happy with your submission of relevant examples. Please submit to BBC100.Women@bbc.co.uk

Deadline for registration 8th October, please find rough agenda for the event below.

In order to take part, you'll need to be available to work for up to 2 weeks following the event. 

If you have any questions, please contact us at connectedstudios@bbc.co.uk 

Best wishes,

The BBC Connected Studio Team
