There are three weeks remaining in the Alexa Skills Challenge: Multimodal. Submissions are due January 22, 2019 before 5pm ET.
Start your submission now
Starting a submission is a good way to make sure that your skill meets the requirements. There’s nothing worse than getting to the deadline, only to realize that you’re missing a key component. Remember: once you submit a project, you can keep editing it as needed at any time prior to the submission deadline. Need a primer on how the submission form works? Head over to our submission form tutorial.
Prepare your video
Don’t forget that your submission must include a video demonstrating your skill for this competition. Check out our video-making tips here. As always, we strongly recommend that you don’t wait to the last minute.
Main Requirement: Build (or update) and publish a skill that uses the new Alexa Presentation Language (APL) to add multimodal elements to voice-first experiences.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Skills using display interface or display templates are NOT eligible. Your skill must use APL and include at least one APL document to qualify
