B. Submission Judging Criteria: Submissions will be evaluated by the Poster during the Submission Review Period in two stages.

Stage One) The first stage will determine via pass/fail whether the submissions meet a baseline level of viability, in that there is a reasonable chance they reasonably fit the theme and requirements of the competition.

(i) Structure (Includes the quality and clarity of the implementation structure and/or frameworks used.);

C. Submission Review: JUDGES ARE NOT REQUIRED TO TEST THE APPLICATION AND MAY CHOOSE TO JUDGE BASED SOLELY ON THE TEXT DESCRIPTION, IMAGES AND VIDEO PROVIDED IN THE SUBMISSION. 

D. Tie Breaker: For each Prize listed in Section 7 below, if two or more Submissions are tied, the tied Submission with the highest score in the first applicable criterion listed above will be considered the higher scoring Submission. In the event any ties remain, this process will be repeated, as needed, by comparing the tied Submissions’ scores on the next applicable criterion. If two or more Submissions are tied on all applicable criteria, the panel of Judges will vote on the tied Submissions.
