This June we'll be holding another of our quarterly issue bashes to allow the community to get involved in helping to squash some issues in the GitLab Community Edition issue tracker. We have over 1,900
[GitLab contributors](http://contributors.gitlab.com/),
and we are always looking for more people to join in and contribute to the project in any way that they can.

<!-- more -->

Of course, some lucky contributors will be rewarded with awesome swag! 🙌

This is your chance to get involved! Most of the tasks don't require
technical expertise, therefore, non-technical community
members are definitely welcome and prize worthy!

## How do you get involved?

Please see [the FAQ on the Issue Bash landing page](/community/issue-bash/#bash-q-a) to learn more about how to get involved.

## Prizes

As prizes, we have some awesome swag available:

- 14 T-shirts
- 1 T-shirt and Hoodie for a lucky contributor

Users making any contributions to the project,
between the start and end times of the event, will be entered into the random draw
to win a prize. The contributions will be collated after the end of the event and
prize winners, drawn at random, will be contacted in the weeks that follow.

To see how we draw winners at random please take a look at the [prize winner calculator project](https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/issue-bash/prize-winner-calculator).

## Questions? More info?

[GitLab team](/company/team/) and [GitLab core team](/community/core-team/) members will be on hand to answer questions and close issues. Please mention them if you need any help or need attention on an issue.
