# About Demo Day
Demo day was started by the Optimism Ambassador Program as a way for users to see all the cool dApps on Optimism! It runs every Thursday at 4pm UTC. dApps have ~15 minutes to showcase, we recommend 10 minutes to present and another 5 for questions. This can be anything from a full run through, to showing off a new feature, or promoting a special event on the dApp!
To apply to be featured in our next Demo Day, head over to the Demo-day channel (opens new window) in our Discord (it's under events).
For further visibility projects are encouraged to add their project into our developers show and tell section here on GitHub (opens new window)
