What is DownUnderCTF?

DownUnderCTF is a world-wide Capture The Flag (CTF) competition targeted at Australian secondary and tertiary students.

Who are we?

DownUnderCTF started as a collaboration between 13 University Cyber Security societies around Australia. Now, we are a mix of University and young IT professionals working together to build Australia’s largest CTF.

Why are we running this?

We thought it would be a cool event to run. And also CySCA has been cancelled for the foreseeable future :(

Who can participate?

As mentioned above, our target audience will be for Australian secondary and tertiary students. However anyone is free to join in!

How much does it cost?

Participation is completely free. We do have some nice prizes up for grabs, with details to be announced.

Can I win prizes?

If you are either an Australian secondary or tertiary student, you will be eligible to win some prizes. For everyone else, you will be able to win some bragging rights!

When does it start and end?

The CTF will run from 23rd September 2022 at 7:30pm (AEST) to 25th September 2022 at 7:30pm (AEST).
