Product Hunt allows users to share and discover new products. Over the past few years, they have put on Makers Festivals to encourage makers to build and launch products in a short period of time. A new online festival has just been announced and it is open to people from all backgrounds from all over the world.

With so many people working from home, Product Hunt thought it would be a good time to host a global work from home festival that could benefit coronavirus relief efforts. Many products exist or have been created in order to make lives easier during this time. They even launched their own Product Hunt Merch shop last week focused on WHO’s COVID-19 response fund. 

Now, Product Hunt wants makers to do the same. The call is out for the development of products geared towards assisting people at this time, from self-care to tools aimed towards healthcare workers on the front lines. Makers can work alone or in remote teams. Projects are not limited to a certain platform and they would like to see both no-code and code-based initiatives. 

According to the rules posted on the website, products must be built within the period of the Makers Festival. Registration has started and continues through until Apr. 1 at 11 p.m. PT. All products must be submitted by Apr. 16 at 11 p.m. PT.

Voting will be open from Apr. 20 – Apr. 24. Entries will rated based on a combination of popularity within the online community and judging from the Product Hunt team. Winners will be announced on April 28.

Check the submission guidelines for more details.
