existing skill

Hi, I started planning and building Alexa Skills few weeks ago and today i was browsing Alexa Skills and noted that similar skills already exist. However my skill is targeted for kids 4 to 8 years old and it will have some difference, but core idea is same. Can i still qualify for "Amazon Alexa Skills Challenge: Kids" if similar skill exist? Thanks,

    Hey Ahmed,

    Yes you would still be eligible. You cannot submit multiple skills that are the same yourself, but if a skill exists in the store that is not yours it is ok. Please note, though that creativity and originality of the idea is one of the judging criteria. I encourage you to think of a creative twist on the idea!

    All the best,
    Stefanie

    Hey Adva,

    To be honest, I wouldn't worry about that. It is very unlikely to happen. We don't open the submission gallery on Devpost until the period closes so another person would have to find your skill and then build it. Plus the submissions and video uploads are time stamped.

    You can wait until the end, but then you run the risk of not passing certification and having no time to make fixes and resubmit.

    Best,
    Stefanie
