National Finals and Online Finals

https://imaginemedia.blob.core.windows.net/library/nationalfinals_660x360.jpg?sfvrsn=2

Ready to compete in the Imagine Cup? This is where you start.

You must compete in your country's National Final or Online Final to advance in the Imagine Cup. The contest you enter, the materials you submit, and the deadlines you must meet all depend on which country you're competing in.

What are National Finals and Online Finals?

Dozens of countries around the world hold an Imagine Cup National Final for students in that country. If there is a National Final where you live, you'll need to compete in it to advance to the World Semifinals.

For all other countries without a National Final, we offer an Online Final where students in the rest of the world can compete. Teams from the Online Final can then advance to the World Semifinals with everyone else.

You cannot compete in both. The Online Final is not available in countries with their own National Final.

Which one is offered in my country?
