Of course, you can! Each story submission shall be considered a new entry into the writing contest.

How are the winners selected?

  • Each month, we’ll take the top 10 story submissions that generated the most traffic.
  • Those ten stories will be voted on by HackerNoon staff, and the 4 stories with the most votes will win.

Can I win more than one prize?

Yes! If you submit multiple stories, each has the chance to win.


Nominees are selected by total traffic each month and then voted on by our team. If 2 of your submitted stories are in the top 10 most-visited that month, both of them are eligible to win a prize. Meaning you could potentially bag both first and second place in the contest if 2 of your stories make it to the top 10!

If I win a prize in round 1, can I still submit another entry into round 2?

Absolutely! Please feel free to enter each round of the cybersecurity writing competition.

We are waiting for your submissions! Let’s win some $$$!
