JUDGING PROCESS

Judging process and criteria

Below you find the judging criteria for all the contest categories.  Consider these as guidelines and as inspiration when developing your project.

Please note, that you can create an outstanding (winning) project even if you have not fulfilled every criterion listed.  It is the overall strength of the project that is judged, because sometimes it might be best to focus on certain things and less on others.

The judging process will be a collaborative effort and the decisions of the jury will be based on a democratic consensus approach.  The decision of the jury is final and cannot be challenged.  It will not be altered, unless new relevant information comes to light, which justifies a disqualification.
