How do I get email notification for contest running/starting on codechef?

I always miss contests running on codechef other then cookoff and long contest. I do get email notifications for these two, but never come to know about other contest untill I see somebody submitted some solution. And then I realize the contest is already over!

How can I subscribe for a email notification for every contest starting on codechef?


I think codechef doesn’t mail their user base directly for external contests as that might be felt as spamming by many. If an external contest is close enough to their regular contest then they couple it up with their regular announcement sometimes.

If you don’t want to miss other contests going on codechef then follow them on Redirecting... and/or keep checking the page Competitive Programming and Coding Challenges - CodeChef regularly.


+1 for gultus’s answer. All I would like to add is there is an event calendar as well on our site which can be used to keep track of the contests on CodeChef.

Here is the solution if you love to participate in coding contest but facing problem in staying updated with all upcoming contest.

  • Challenge Hunt, a chrome extension which keeps me updated with all upcoming contest and hackathons from all online judges (Codechef, Hackerearth, Codeforces, Topcoder and many including Hackathons).
  • But I rather prefer Hackerrank Contest Calendar, because of nice interface, which covers all upcoming coding contest from all online judges (Codechef calendar is limited to Codechef only). Pretty easy, Hunhh.
  • There are also many apps out there for android and one of them is Coding Calendar.

Now you’ll be able to keep yourself updated with all coding contest with ease.


thanks for this amazing information,.
must get back to this site next time

file extension apk
download internet explorer 11

I use this app:

It’s pretty cool and helpful and shows competitions of all sites and you can add a reminder to your mobile’s calendar app with a single click. Open it once a week and set your reminders

It’d be grateful, if you can start a notification on mail service or notification on one’s home page, I mostly miss out on contests due to lack of knowledge about the same.

This Telegram channel will remind you of the upcoming coding contests daily at 4:30 PM IST (11:00 AM UTC)
