Judging Criteria

  • Learning
    Did the team stretch themselves? Did you try to learn something new? What kind of projects have you worked on before? If you always do virtual reality projects, decide to switch up and try doing a mobile app or other category instead
  • Completion
    Does the hack work? Did you achieve everything you wanted?
  • Design
    Did you put thought into the user experience? How well designed is the interface? For a website, this might be about how beautiful the CSS or graphics are. For a hardware project, it might be more about how good the human-computer interaction is.
  • Technology
    How technically impressive was the hack? Was the technical problem you tackled difficult? Did it use a particularly clever technique or did it use many different components? Did the technology involved make people go "Wow"?
