On June 6, 2022, Avalanche blockchain’s developer Ava Labs launched a guide-writing competition focused on building subnets, with prizes given away with a total of $32K to winning participants. 

Ava Labs’ main goal is to “help fellow developers shape the future of Web3,” the company said in an article published on its official Medium account. Subnets are the preferred scaling solution for blockchain game devs as it expands the library of resources for projects through an easier process.

After a contestant’s work undergoes critique and revision, they will be qualified to receive a cash prize of $1,000 for every tutorial piece. Final winners bag as much as $2,000-$5,000, depending on the topic’s level of difficulty. The company looks to also give special recognition to winners via social media and the AVAX community.

Ava Labs’ criteria for judging includes accuracy, correctness, creativity, originality, and simplicity. The tutorials must also be easy to understand, effective, and practical to implement touching on topics such as deploying Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs), creating private subnets, and extending subnet EVMs, to name a few.

The contest contains two rounds with the first running from June 6th to July 5th (11:59PM ET), while the second is set for commencement on July 14th and ends on July 22nd (11:59PM ET).
