The Stremio addon development contest has become a tradition – after 3 successful editions, it is now time for another one.
We’re introducing The Stremio ADDON TITANS 2020 contest. Between today and March 9, 2021 developers from all over the world will compete to show off their coding skills, creativity and innovative thinking. The top developers will share a juicy prize pool of $5,000 that is also payable in bitcoin if the winners prefer cryptocurrency.
We will award four prizes to the participants who perform best in the competition:
- The Stremio Grand Prize $2,000 or the equivalent of $2,000 in Bitcoin;
- First Prize: $1,500 or the equivalent of $1,500 in Bitcoin;
- Second Prize: $1,000 or the equivalent of $1,000 in Bitcoin;
- Third Prize: $500 or the equivalent of $500 in Bitcoin.
The Stremio Grand Prize will be determined by a jury of Stremio developers – members of our team will judge addon submissions based on various criteria like code quality, functionality, UX, performance, security, originality, etc.
The first, second and third prizes will be decided by a community vote.
The contest opens today, November 23,2020, and will run until March 9, 2021. The cutoff date for submissions is February 28, 2021 – make sure not to miss the deadline if you’re planning to take part!
Between March 1 and March 8 we will judge submissions and our community will be voting on their favourite new addons, and winners will be announced on March 9, 2021.

Q: Do I need programming skills to participate?
A: Yes. You need to be able to code in order to create an addon.
Q: Do I need to host the addon I create?
A: You can if you want to, but you don’t have to. A link to the Git repository of the addon is enough to enter the competition.
