Judging Criteria

  • Originality
    Your hack should demonstrate some extent of originality. Meaning that if your hack has already been done many times before, it is not original. Try and build something that hasn't been done before.
  • Creativity
    Make your hack outside the box and forward-thinking.
  • Execution
    How polished is your hack? Does it work? Does it look pretty?
