With this Challenge, participants will build and enter a Twitch extension to the best of their abilities.

What exactly is an extension? It’s either a panel or overlay that can be used by the viewers to interact with the broadcast in some way. You may already be familiar with extensions and not know it! Some of the more popular ones right now are StreamLegends , Prime and Loot Reminder  and StreamLabs Leaderboard.

Eight finalists will be selected, and the Grand Prize Winner for the extension challenge will win a wonderful package of prizes consisting of $15,000, tickets to TwitchCon 2019, and a meeting with Twitch Leadership. Runner ups will include cash prizes for second and third place, four honorable mentions, and a Crowd Favorite Category.

 

How is it judged, you may ask? There’s a few areas that will be important to success.

  • Creativity and Innovation is key – Don’t reskin one, make something original and thoughtful that wows the crowd
  • Work the idea and do it well – Make sure that the idea behind the extension is clear and well set. Don’t make a leaderboard that doesn’t show what the leader is leading.
  • What value it adds – Does this add some value to the already extensive library of extensions?
  • Marketable – Can this be marketed easily and sold well.

Competition dates go from November 27th to February 26th so get cracking!
