Judging Criteria

  • Technical Impressiveness (30%)
    How impressive is your hack from a technical perspective? What were the challenges you had to surmount, and were they difficult given just 24 hours? “Wow” factor is also a criteria
  • Innovation (30%)
    How innovative, original and unexpected is your hack? Does it do something entirely novel, or at least take a fresh approach to an old problem?
  • Completion and Polish (20%)
    Is your hack usable and polished? Does everything work? Is it well designed?
  • Usefulness and Practicality (20%)
    How practical is your hack? Is it something people would actually use? How useful is your hack?
  • Disclaimer
    These criteria will guide judges but ultimately judges are free to make decisions based on their gut feeling of which projects are the most impressive and most deserving.
