How do I Participate?

To enter the competition, just press the register button above. Once the competition starts on September 16th, head over to and start writing. It’s that simple!

Note that it takes us upto 36 hours to review and provide feedback for each article. And once you see ‘Published’ on the Editor, give it up to 6 hours for the article to reflect on the Analytics Vidhya blog.

Please make sure to add a couple of lines about yourself and a link to your social media such as LinkedIn, etc. at the end of your article for better visibility.

The leaderboard will reflect one article per author. If you want to submit 2 or more articles, those will count as separate entries.

The submissions will close on 7th October 2021, 23:59 IST (GMT +5:30 hrs). We will provide an extra week to work on any feedback we give, provided the article has been submitted before the deadline.

Even though you need to submit your article by 11.59 pm on October 7th the views for your article will count until October 14th, 11.59 pm. So keep sharing your article after it's been published to increase your chances of winning!
