Despite the cancellation of the 2020 RoboPlay Challenge Competition, the 2020 RoboPlay Video Challenge will continue. We encourage you to participate in this event, as it does not require physical meeting and ensures the safety of all participants.

2020 RoboPlay Theme: Adventure and Exploration

Starting 2018, we added an award category each year for a theme which is the same for RoboPlay Challenge Competition. This year’s theme of RoboPlay Competition is Adventure and Exploration. However, your videos do not have to have such a theme.
