Judging Criteria

  • Best Design
    Hacks that put major emphasis on design. They look clean, but not overly simplistic, and their UI's are elegant and easy for users to operate. This category generally applies to hacks whose main component is visual rather than functional .
  • Best Use of an API
    Hacks that use an API creatively to solve a problem or synthesize multiple API's in an original manner. Simply returning the output of an API won't work.
  • Future Startup
    Hacks that solve a real world problem. These are first prototypes of software that could potentially become a real product. These hacks must be practical for consumers to use, and there must be demand for a solution to the problem they fix.
  • Best Game
    Hacks that are games. These games have unique mechanics, gameplay, or plot concept/theme. Furthermore, they must be a well-designed and enjoyable experience for the player.
  • Best Overall
    The hack that shows the best combination of excellent technical skill and brilliant imagination.
