How do I win a CodeChef Goodie?

I want to know how can I get a CodeChef goodie? In which monthly contests, how many goodies are given? Does CodeChef also give certificates to the winners?

*Top 25 Indian users will get Amazon Vouchers worth Rs. 1500 each.

Miscellaneous Categories:

  • First to solve each problem individually: 100 laddus
  • Country wise participation: Top 10, 20 and 30 will get 30, 40 and 50 laddus as per participation (participation is counted by combining both Divisions)

You can simply earn laddus and redeem those for the CodeChef goodies.

You need to win contests for prizes. I mean you get some “Laddus” with which you can buy goodies for free.

I am new here. Is there a different ranklist for Indians or if Indians come first they get the prize money?

Thank you.

@admin,@vijju123 i fell just top 3 school students in long challenge div 2 is low, i think top 5 might be better due to no of school students in div 2 is much higher when compared no of school students in div 1.
just a suggestion(atleast for indian school students)

Hi, have the prizes for march challenge been distributed ? I have received nothing yet. I last time I got something, it was very quick.

Isin’t it taking very long this time ?

This is with regard to the 100% participation. Will unrated contests like March Lunchtime 2018(LTIME58A) be taken into account for that category?

I wanted to participate in it, but as it was postponed I thought would do it in the practice section. So will my participation streak be reset to zero or not?

For obtaining 100% attendance participation reward, can a user’s participation streak start from Cook Off or Lunch Time?

Or will it start from the beginning of the month, i.e., Long Challenge?

For Example:

If a user is participating regularly from June Cook Off 2017, then can he get 100% attendance participation reward for June Cook Off 2017 to June Long Challenge 2018?

Or will he get it for July Long Challenge 2017 to June Lunch Time 2018?

Does this mean that user is eligible for cash prize only if he has been in the Top 2 in past?
Or he will get equivalent extra laddus for this?
And if a user has been in the top 2 in div2. And then in the top in Div1 because is not a first timer so he is eligible for cash?

How to paly

Hello, I ranked fifth in the recent February Cook-Off 2019 Division 2 and by admin’s response to this question, 50 laddus are awarded:

Division 2:
...
IN MONTHLY COOK-OFF CONTESTS
...
For Global participants
Top 5 from ranklist will receive 50 laddus. Additionally, they get bonus (Bonus = n - contest rank) where 'n' is 6 for short contests.

However, there are no laddus present when I go to the CodeChef goodies page: https://gyazo.com/01cf162ba3d3021588599dc591e1f436 . Is this a bug, or is there a delay, or am I misinterpreting the prize description?

Thanks

@admin , How will we know about the 5 randomly selected participants for the Random Laddus prize category?

If i am not wrong, the “goodies” are now replaced by laddus.

Do we get response on reporting a bug whether the bug is inconsistent or was invalid ?

Or you can ask someone to give you one
