Source Code Upload Requirement
I was going to enter this contest until I checked the rules and saw that you had to upload your entry code to GitHub. I can't do that as I'm sure many others can't. I've never understood this requirement because it seems like a good way to ensure that people that have spent a lot of time developing something valuable over the years will not participate. Given that this is a machine learning contents, a subject that takes years to master, this seems that much more strange.
"Provide a way to access the project for judging and testing, including a link to the repo hosting the application’s code and any other deployment files and testing instructions needed for testing the project. (The Github code repository may be public or private. If the repository is private, share access with firstname.lastname@example.org)"
Yes I saw the "private" part of that paragraph. You're still asking us to share the code, at least with you. Anyone with any source code that provides a competitive advantage to them in the marketplace is going to pass on this contest. My two cents.
