Worth of Prizes

New to CTFs?

CTFs, short for Capture the Flags, are a type of Computer Security competition where you hack, decrypt, reverse, and do whatever it takes to solve increasingly challenging security puzzles!

PACTF is different

PACTF allows you to solve problems and win prizes without spending fourteen consecutive days on a CTF.

Instead of a two-week sprint, PACTF will have two rounds, each one week long. During each round, you can pick any two-day span to grab as many flags as you can! Choose wisely: Once your two days run out, you won’t be able to score more points in that round.
