Following the application phase, a select group of ten teams will earn a stipend and access to the Niantic Real World Platform. Finalists will work for a three-month period, with the goal of showing off their incredible work at a Demo Day in San Francisco, hosted by Niantic. In addition to regular guidance and discussion from the Niantic Engineering team, finalists will be brought to San Francisco/Bay Area to meet with executives and lay the groundwork for the work to come.
The contest is open for submissions now through February 17, 2019. Details on how to apply can be found on the developer website. To learn more about the contest, and its requirements, check out the Niantic blog.
