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 enhances retention of what you have learned and 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 serves as a great learning experience and 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,, Shine, etc. 

Get Noticed in the Analytics Vidhya Community

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.

 New Submission Category – Guides!

As mentioned above, we continue to publish “Guides”. Guides are intended to be a one-stop resource on specific topics in Data Engineering, Machine Learning and related topics. Since we receive multiple entries for Guides, only one Guide per topic will be published.


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 of a minimum of 2500 words in length. It should also be on a topic in the domain of Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Data Engineering, etc.

Some Points to Note

* Note that the final consideration of a guide is an editorial decision which is based on how unique your guide’s topic is and how comprehensively you have explained all components of that topic.

* Note that the article will have to be technical and code-based in nature to be eligible for the above special categories. Listicles or career articles will not count.

* All International payments will be made via Paypal.
