U Hack and Play is a series of "hackathons" open to information technology (IT) students and young professionals. 

Not to be confused with illegal hacking, hackathons provide an arena where young minds can stage their bright and unadulterated "life hacks" as to how the society can address digital age challenges.

The best way to put it is U Hack and Play is like a talent search for groundbreaking ideas as fast as IT is concerned.

"This first of a kind experience we provide shall set us miles apart from the rest." UnionBank SVP and Human Resource Director Michelle Rubio said in a press statement.

The hackathon hosted by UnionBank will kick off in Cebu tomorrow. This is the first leg of the hackathon series which will be held in key cities all over the Philippines. 

During the hackathons participants will be asked to develop digital solutions to certain real life tech-related challenges.

IT experts will be providing mentorship and coaching to the participants while at the hackathon. 

UniomBank said U Hack and Play is the best way for "digital talents" to showcase their prowess in developing digital solutions including artificial intelligence, augmented and virtual reality, identity authentication, robotics and data analytics.

Winning ideas will be adopted by the bank or put in for research and development.

Cash prizes also await the winners.
