You may find all information about submissions on our Oengus page. Please read through all instructions properly as you go through the process, as well as joining our Discord server, and good luck with all your submissions!
Once submissions are closed, we will work as hard as possible to get the schedule out as soon as possible on Horaro. Please note that until the marathon actually starts, it may always be subject to change due to various factors.
If you are interested in submitting a prize that could be given away during Bingothon Winter 2020, then please go through this submission form to do so!

If you are interested in volunteering for Bingothon Winter 2020, then you may apply using the appropriate forms linked below! We are looking for hosts who will be reading donations throughout the event, as well as tech volunteers who may help dealing with what’s going on under the hood of the stream throughout the event! And don’t worry, you do not need experience to apply, just the willingness to learn if needed, and your enthusiasm!
Do note that if you already volunteered for a past event, then you do not need to re-apply again.

Just as Bingothon Summer 2020, Winter 2020 will benefit Fred Hutch, an organization doing research on various diseases including, of course, COVID-19. But beyond that, they also have a division on cancer research, and are well dedicated to their project Nextstrain, an open-source database to keep track of viral evolution for researchers worldwide to see and use for further research.
You can find out more about them directly on their website for them generally, or more here for their Nextstrain project specifically. You can also learn more about their actions against COVID-19 specifically here.
Also, did you know we had an interview with a representative of Fred Hutch during Summer 2020, mainly focused on COVID-19? Hearing insights from someone who directly works in such an organization and with such knowledge does not happen everyday, so you can find that interview on our YouTube channel if you want to know more about that!
