Though you still might be wondering, apart from the monetary rewards, what else is there to learn for you?
Implement your Learnings
Be the master of your data science learnings and transcribe them for the world to read. Learning and writing go hand-in-hand, and jotting down your thoughts not only enhances retention of what you have learned but also serves for future reference.
Boost Structured Thinking
A good data scientist knows how to code. But, a great data scientist knows precisely how to approach each problem with a structured thinking mindset and the ability to storyboard. Working closely on problem statements and the habit of writing about your possible solutions gives you the edge over every other coding master.
Build up your Resume
Writing blogs and getting them published not only serves as a great learning experience but also boosts your visibility in the massive crowd of data scientists like you out there.
Analytics Vidhya’s Data Science Blogathon is the second largest of its kind in the world, and every article published is shareable on popular hiring websites and job boards like LinkedIn, Monster.com, Shine, etc.
Get Noticed in the Analytics Vidhya Community
While gaining knowledge through the process of blog writing is important but getting a chance to network with industry leaders and like-minded people is priceless. Analytics Vidhya has 2.5 million monthly users including industry experts so there’s a good chance of reaching potential employers for your dream role.
Cash Rewards are at stake!
Learning, networking and recognition are all well and good but we have cash rewards for the best writers out there, with a new writing category and a surprise reward on offer as well. Do read on for more information about the rewards.
What are the Prizes on the Offer?

Mega Cash Rewards
That’s not All, More Prizes!
A New Submission Category-Guides
Just like Blogathon 18, we continue to publish Guides, but this time, there are more rewards for Guide Writers. The objective of a Guide is to serve as a one-stop repository of resources and help related to specific topics in Data Science, Machine Learning and other related topics. Guides help the community to learn and grow, and help you to process and transcribe your learnings in a concise, structured written piece. Since we receive multiple entries from our guide writers, we publish only one guide per topic. Some of the suggested topics are given below:
Here is an example of a Guide: K Means Clustering | K Means Clustering Algorithm in Python
Feel free to explore any topic of your choice though – the only restriction is that it should be as comprehensive as possible and should be a minimum of 2500 words in length. It should also be on a topic in the domain of Machine Learning, Data Science, Deep Learning, Data Engineering, etc.
Please note that the final consideration of a guide is an editorial decision that is based on how unique your Guide’s topic is and how comprehensively you have explained all components of that topic.
A Special Award Category: Win the New iPad!
You are not in a dream. Every author whose article gets published in the blogathon stands a chance to win the latest iPad through a random draw, where one lucky winner will be chosen.
This is an opportunity that should not be passed upon. You stand a chance to get your hands on the latest iPad with striking fast performance and an outstanding display. Think of the amount of learning you would be able to achieve on this powerful device from Apple.
