  • All public hackathons, contests, and/or challenges — that include more than 50 participants — can take advantage of the offer. The event must include participants from different teams and organizations (unfortunately, we don't support internal company hackathons). Workshops, courses, and non-competition challenges don't apply.
  • As organiser you will be the admin of a free Miro account, with ability to invite and manage as many participants as you requested for the contest.
  • We encourage you to get in touch with the event organizer directly (make sure to share a link of this page). Once we approve access, they will be able to invite you.
  • Free, unlimited boards! You can create as many boards as you like (think: infinite ideas). Board features will be the same features as the ones included in the Team plan (with the exception of video chat, Jira, and Confluence integrations).
  • We have just one small ask: Please mention Miro as a sponsor on your event's marketing materials (like your event's official web page and social media posts).
  • First, thank you for applying! Your application will be reviewed in no more than 10 business days. Make sure to check your email for a notification from us (and check your Spam folder, too).
  • We love that your team actively collaborates in Miro, but unfortunately, the offer is not included.
  • We love the enthusiasm! Yes, absolutely, as organizer you can apply to run more than one event.
  • Great question! You can access your boards free only for the dates of the event (after that, your account will be locked). If you want to continue using your boards, you can copy them to your work account or convert to the Team plan.
