How to hold a contest

If you would like to hold unofficial events at a WCA competition (A) or create an unofficial competition (B) or meetup (C), follow these steps:

1. Create an account and send an email to with this information:

1.1. Username

1.2. WCA ID

1.3. Name of the competition/meetup you are organizing

2. Once an admin grants you moderator privileges and ties your competitor profile to your account, log out and log back in. You will now be able to find the "Mod Dashboard" button in the user section in the navbar. Go to that page.

B1. If you are holding an unofficial competition, you must use the Competition contest type and fill out the contest details manually. Both WCA events and unofficial events may be held at these kinds of competitions.

B2. The rest of the process is the same as WCA Competition.

B3. Unofficial competitions are only allowed if they cannot reasonably be held as official WCA competitions. Please DO NOT attempt to use Cubing Contests as a substitute for the WCA. Your competition may be rejected if it is deemed that it could be held as a WCA competition instead.
