Judging Criteria

  • Application/Impact
    Does the project have any feasible application and/or have a social impact that goes above and beyond? Will this help the community with a real problem they are facing? Can this be implemented? This is a key category.
  • Functionality/Quality
    Is the project free of major bugs? Does it look appealing? The UI/UX doesn’t have to be absolutely perfect, but if we're having a hard time understanding the project by looking at it, there may be a problem.
  • Creativity
    Is this project unique and innovative? Is it a solution or creation we have never seen before? A better way of doing something?
  • Technical Complexity & Fit
    Are the team pushing themselves in the technology they use? Does it make sense to use the technology for the use case? The team should display a good level of knowledge in terms of the technology they’ve used in implementing their project.
