We believe that when innovators come together with passion and purpose, amazing things can happen. Building on the momentum of the first hackathon in our series, we’re excited to welcome global developers to continue learning, building and growing in our next online challenge.
Leveraging the power of messaging, augmented reality (AR) and artificial intelligence (AI), this time around, we invite you to create solutions that help build community and drive social impact.

We’ll also be providing a free swag giveaway* to each team member from an eligible submission, as well as some amazing cash prizes and Oculus virtual reality headsets for the winning teams.

Spark AR helps creators imagine, build and share augmented reality experiences that reach the billions of people on Facebook and Instagram.
Whether you’re a beginner, using Spark AR templates and libraries to create your first effect, or an experienced pro, using customizations to build more interactive experiences — it’s time to put your imagination and creativity to the test.
We invite all creators to make and submit a Spark AR World Effect that helps enrich communities or supports a larger social good.
As always, you’ll have access to the Spark AR creator community, along with instructional tutorials and resources, to help you with your project. Several submissions will be selected to receive cash prizes and Oculus virtual reality headsets, and we’ll also be providing a free swag giveaway* to each team member from an eligible submission.

What to build: Using Spark AR Studio, create a World AR effect for Instagram. World effects layer AR experiences on surfaces, objects and people in your environment, and are viewable using the world-facing camera on your smartphone (not the self-facing camera). We can’t wait to see how you augment your world!
