The 2019 Alan Turing Cryptography Competition is now in its seventh year! It’s an online competition run by the University's School of Mathematics.

Cryptography Competition
2019 Alan Turing Cryptography Competition opens on Monday 28 January 2019

Every one to two weeks a new chapter of the story is released and there are six chapters in total. Each chapter has a new cryptographic puzzle to solve. The team (one to four people) that solves the chapter’s puzzle the fastest wins a prize, but there will also be up to ten 'spot prizes' for every chapter chosen at random from teams who submit the correct answers! At the end of the competition we will host the Alan Turing Cryptography Day on Wednesday, 1 May 2019 with everything from a live cryptography challenge to a prize ceremony for the competition winners. It’s not to be missed!

The Alan Turing Cryptography Competition begins on Monday, 28 January 2019 and is sponsored by the travel company Skyscanner.  Two of the three founders of Skyscanner were former computer scientists from The University of Manchester – two people who directly benefitted from Turing’s contributions to Manchester and computing.
