Judging Criteria

  • Technology
    How technically impressive was the hack? Was the technical problem the team tackled difficult? Did it use a particularly clever technique or did it use many different components? Did the technology involved make you go "Wow"?
  • Design
    Did the team 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.
  • Purpose
    Tackling a problem is what gives meaning to a project. But just tackling a problem is useless if you can’t articulate the problem and/or your project doesn’t actually solve it.
  • Growth
    What did you learn and how did you apply it? ZotHacks is primarily about learning something new and then eventually being applied in their projects. This adheres to Hack’s motto, Learn, Explore, Create.
