Judging Criteria

  • Creativity
    Is the hack more than just another generic social/mobile/local app? Does it do something entirely novel, or at least take a fresh approach to an old problem? How original is it?
  • Technical Complexity
    Is the hack technically interesting or difficult? Is it just some lipstick on an API, or were there real technical challenges to surmount? How difficult is the stack being used?
  • Design
    Is the hack aesthetically pleasing? Does the design of the hack elevate its message? Did the team put thought into the user experience? How well designed is the interface?
  • Execution
    How well did you achieve what you set out to do? How polished is your project? Are the features you included functional and thorough? How functional is your project? Does it serve a purpose?
