We are excited to announce that we will be assigning Zindi points to the top 10 finishers in each competition. Unless stated otherwise, the point value of each competition will be the same as the USD value of the prizes.
If the prize for a challenge is worth $10,000 USD, then up to 10,000 Zindi points can be earned per competitor. These points will be distributed as follows:
1st place 10,000 points (100%)
2nd place 9,000 points (90%)...
10th place 1,000 (10%)
So what are these points good for? Your points will show up in your profile and we will soon launch the new 'Data Scientists' page, which will rank and highlight the top performers based on total Zindi points earned. So keep an eye out for that!
Congrats to the top 10 of the SDG challenge! You will see your points soon.
