The competition is open to anyone in the international maker community, aged 18 or older.  Up to a thousand participants will be offered an ESP32-PICO-KIT V4 for free, provided they submit  a carefully-planned project proposal by 24:00 hrs CET, on January 31st, 2018. Although there is a focus on Espressif’s new ESP32-PICO-KIT, any ESP32-based hardware platform can be used in the competing projects. 

ESP32 is the most integrated Wi-Fi & Dual-Mode Bluetooth chip in the IoT industry. ESP32 can perform as a complete standalone system or as a slave device to a host microcontroller, reducing communication stack overhead on the main application processor. Our rich series of ESP32-based modules and developments boards are bound to inspire you to build any low-power and high-performing IoT solution.
