SAINTCON Call for Contests

The UtahSAINT Organization is excited to announce the Open Call for Contests for the upcoming SAINTCON 2023 conference event.

Hi, I’m Zevlag

SAINTCON Contest Manager

If you have any questions about contests for SAINTCON, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me.


As planning for SAINTCON 2024 continues, we recognize the extreme value that contests bring to our learning, growth and entertainment.  Last year was in many ways a breakthrough year for our community conference, and we are looking to improve it even more. 

We are looking for New Contests, Old Contests, Reinvented Contests, but mostly More Contest for our community to participate in.

As such we are opening the “Open Call for Contests” effective immediately.


We are seeking ideas and proposals for Contests at SAINTCON.  Below are some ideas we’ve supported in the past, but if your contest is not listed here, don’t worry we still want to hear from you!

  • Hackers Challenge – Jeopardy Style CTF
  • Los Santos – Escape Challenge
  • King of the Hill – Maintain Control CTF
  • Traditional Capture the Flag Competition (DEFCON Style)

Please include all required information (outlined below) in the body of the e-mail rather than attaching a pdf/odf/docx/pages/wtf document. Once you submit, a member of the selection committee will acknowledge your submission within 3 business days. If you don’t hear back from us. Something went wrong!
