We know many of you have been building great implementations using the Algolia API. We want to see more of them, and this is why we decided to kick off a Coding Contest!
Participating is simple:
The deadline for all submissions is Wednesday, May 5th, 11:59PM PST.
Exciting news! For each category, the winner will receive one of the following:
On top of that, each participant is entitled to a 1-month coupon to use Algolia for free. Please send us an email to codingcontest[at]algolia.com with “Coupon request” in the subject line.
Build a search interface using Algolia. It can be for mobile or the web. You can integrate it into an existing website or app, or create a simple, standalone interface for the contest.
If you are not familiar with Algolia, we suggest you follow our Quick Start guide, which will help you (a) send data to Algolia and (b) build a UI. You can also use our Interactive Tutorial for the same purposes.
Additionally, feel free to use any of Algolia’s features: facets, solutions, paging, menus, and so on. Check out our solutions page in the docs for tutorials, and check our inspiration library to see what you can build.
We will not accept projects that display violence, pornography, abuse, or any kind of hate speech, as stated in the Coding Contest Official Rules.
To evaluate the submitted projects, we take into account:
Important note: you can only submit one project. Choose from one of the following three categories:
If you’re not familiar with Strapi, we offer you a broader option: build a project using the Algolia API, plus any other APIs or tools you’d like for this project.
Again, be creative! Please refer to our documentation if you have any questions.

No. The goal of this contest is for you to build something new. We want to make the contest fair to every participant who has until May 5th to build their project. However, you can definitely get inspired by one of your previous projects using Algolia!
You can submit a private repository, but we will ask you to give access to the jury members when you submit on the codingcontest[at]algolia.com email adress.
