One month left – start your submission

There’s one month remaining in the Amazon Alexa Skills Challenge! Submissions are due May 9, 2017, before 5pm ET.

Start your submission now

Starting a submission is a good way to make sure that your new Alexa skill meets the requirements. There’s nothing worse than getting to the deadline, only to realize that you’re missing a key component. Remember: once you submit a project, you can keep editing it as needed at any time prior to the submission deadline. Need a primer on how the submission form works? Head over to our submission form tutorial.

Review the Alexa Skills Store certification process

Remember, you must also submit your skill to the Alexa Skills Store for certification by 5pm ET on May 9, 2017. Here are instructions on how to do that.

Prepare your video

Don’t forget: your submission must include a video showing your Alexa skill. Too often, participants leave this video to the last minute without realizing that it’s an important way to showcase your work for the judges. If you need some help getting started, we’ve got you covered!
