Microsoft Imagine Cup 2018

Imagine Cup is a global competition that empowers the next generation of computer science students to team up and use their creativity, passion and knowledge of technology to create applications that shape how we live, work and play.

Every year tens of thousands of students from across the globe compete for cash, travel and prizes and for the honor of taking home the Imagine Cup!

Dream it. Build it. Live it.

The next big thing could come from you. Facebook and Twitter started as student projects. Your ideas could be next.

The Imagine Cup is here to help you take the first steps. It’s a global contest for the most original student applications, and the winning team will take home up to $100,000 (US).

Who should apply?

Incredible, world-changing software innovations often come from students.

Social networks, music services, photo apps, games, gadgets and robotics – the list goes on. Microsoft is looking for the next big thing and they know students like you are going to make it.

Imagine Cup, Microsoft’s premier international competition for young developers, is your chance to show off your biggest, boldest software solution.

Code with purpose and show the world what you’ve got.

Why apply?

This competition is the doorway to your success. If you can win here, you can win anywhere.

If you’ve got a great idea, assemble a great team and work hard to bring that idea to life.

Your project could be on devices all over the world, changing lives and giving people the thrill of seeing the future come to life right before their eyes.


Whatever your innovation, you can make an impact and win big – like, $100,000 big – with Imagine Cup.

With pricing that includes mentorship opportunities with industry leaders, an Azure grant and cash, Imagine Cup can help you take your project to the next level.
