HACK THE FUTURE OF PHOTOGRAPHY
Photo Hack Day is a 24-hour coding marathon, where developers, designers, makers and visual artists come together to rapidly prototype new photo applications.
Powered by lightning fast internet, great food and tons of coffee, we’ll hack the future of photography. Big prizes, an international jury and recognition within the community await.

Proudly presented by EyeEm, Canon and Imaging Mind.
There will be 4 main themes guiding us through the weekend:
Create a compelling mobile experience that enables people to discover the world around them through photography - or find photography by exploring and sharing their own worlds. Smart use of location is key to winning this challenge.
Keywords: geolocalization, travel, exploration, context, machine vision, gamification, visual search, storytelling
Use the personal context of the user: Inspire and nudge them to go out and take photos, or share what they’ve already captured. Behavior design and creative use of context is key to winning this challenge.
Keywords: notifications, haptic feedback, habit forming, nudging, behavior design, gamification, machine vision, augmented reality
Harness the latest web and mobile technologies to create an experience that helps anyone, regardless of experience. Get them out shooting and developing their photography skills on the go. A seamless user experience is key to winning this challenge.
Keywords: notifications, machine vision, augmented reality, virtual reality, ux design, gamification, virtual assistant
Make experiencing imagery an experience in itself. Connect photo, video and other visual media with types of data and/or new display-input interfaces. Thinking outside the frame is key to winning this challenge.
