Judging Criteria

  • Technical Impressiveness
    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.
  • Novelty
    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?
  • Demo/Working Prototype.
    Is your hack usable and polished? Does everything work? Is it well designed? How convincing was your demo?
