Submitting to this hackathon could earn you:
All projects and ideas are accepted! We look forward to seeing what awesome things you all build!
Just fill out the elements on the DevPost submission! Although not required, a video would definetly help for judging!
Is the hack technically interesting or difficult? Is it just some lipstick on an API, or were there real technical challenges to surmount? This is the most important criterion that your hack will be judged upon for the general prizes.
How outstanding is the project? Does it feature complex technologies? Does it stand out from other submissions?
Is the application ready for deployment? How realistic is it?
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?
