We’ve made some big changes to Imagine Cup to celebrate the 15th anniversary! Here is a quick summary, please read the official Rules and Regulations for all the details:
Imagine Cup National Finals competitions happen in dozens of countries all over the world. Organized by Microsoft subsidiaries in those countries, the National Finals select the best teams from each participating country to move on to World Finals. Please visit your Account page for local updates and news for your country. The 2017 World Finals location will be announced at a later date.
That depends on the contest, but the first-place team in the Imagine Cup wins $100,000 and all World Finalist teams win a trip to World Finals!
