February 05, 2019

By the Microsoft Student Developer Team

The journey to the 2019 Imagine Cup World Championship kicked off this week with the announcement of the Asia Regional Finalists! Hundreds of teams from 17 countries submitted projects for the chance to move forward to the Asia Regional Finals, and 12 were selected to advance. These teams will compete for over USD20,000 in prizes in Sydney, Australia on February 12 and for a spot in the 2019 Imagine Cup World Championship this May!

Imagine Cup is all about innovation today to create technology solutions for tomorrow. With over 2 million past competitors, participants consistently push the bounds of what’s possible and inspire us with their projects. Students this year were challenged to develop an original idea in teams of up to three and submit a project proposal and video pitch for the preliminary round of judging.

We are excited to introduce the 12 teams from the Asia Semifinals who will be moving forward to the Asia Regional Finals! Click here to meet the teams.

Congratulations to our finalists! Follow their competition journey as they head to Sydney, Australia in February to compete in Imagine Cup at Microsoft Ignite | The Tour! Students will have the opportunity to connect with the tech community, get hands-on with interactive training, and learn about the latest in developer tools and cloud technologies at an event dedicated to continuous learning. Teams will also showcase their project onstage for a chance to advance in the competition and a shot at USD100,000 in the World Championship!
