What is DownUnderCTF?

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

Who are we?

DownUnderCTF started as a collaboration between 13 University Cyber Security societies around Australia. Now welcoming Aotearoa (New Zealand) to the competition for the first time in 2024,we are a mix of University and young IT professionals working together to build Australia and New Zealand’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 and New Zealand 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 or New Zealand 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 Friday, July 5, 2024 at 7:30:00 pm to Sunday, July 7, 2024 at 7:30:00 pm .
