As mentioned above we will have different types of winners by the end of the hackathon. The evaluations will have 2 rounds according to the following:
As mentioned above, we will announce different types of winners with precious prizes.
A sprint-like event where participants team up and create solutions to real-life challenges in an intense period of time. Using creativity, technology and mentoring, the week results in prototypes, fresh new concepts and innovation.
CraftHack is an online hackathon looking for students, fresh graduates or early stage startuppers who are willing to solve our partners’ challenges in 48 hours.
To submit your project create a 2 minute video pitch, upload it to YouTube and link it on the submission form, along with a GitHub repo. The video can have you talking, a live app demo (if you have one), some cool animation, etc... whatever fits best. Please observe these conditions strictly as in other cases we will unfortunately not be able to evaluate your project.
JunctionApp uses an algorithm named Gavel to judge projects. In this pairwise-comparison-based algorithm participants review each other’s projects. The system incorporates a lot of research on mathematical psychology along with fancy math, resulting in a fair and scalable reviewing system. The user is always given two projects to compare, asked to vote for the better one and compare the newer project to the next one (and so forth). This way, one doesn’t have to take in consideration what the absolute perfect, nor what the absolutely worst project would look like. It’s enough to decide the better one of the two that the system suggests. In addition, participants are naturally curious to understand why a certain project has won. Peer reviewing gives them the possibility to have an overlook of other projects and cast their vote for the winners.
The proposals will be evaluated on the basis of the following criteria:
Please note that these are the suggested criteria and there may be changes in the percentages or aspects in the different challenges according to the partners' expectations.
As soon as we have the track and challenge winners, we will ask them to prepare for the live pitch. They will have to present their ideas in 4 minutes and after each pitch there will be a quick Q&A session. This part aims to provide a closer insight into these solutions. In the interest of having a fair selection, we only take into consideration the registered teams’ and the partners’ votes since they will have the most relevant opinion and insight into the projects.
We will announce the grand winner as a summarized result of both of these voting methods.
Yes, if a team selected by the partners as a challenge winner, and the community as a track winner, they will have the chance to also win the grand prize. In addition, since all projects participate in the audience voting, if they collect enough votes from the audience then they can take home the Audience Award too. Overall, it’s more than possible that a team will take home 5,000 €.
The winner of the Audience Award, as its name suggests, is chosen by the audience. Basically, anyone can vote here, whether it’s the long-unseen cousin from France or the kind neighbor next door. In addition, in the audience voting all the teams participate. So if you want to win this prize, then make sure to spread the word on Sunday and share the hackathon with your friends and family.
