Does the work product directly relate to the challenge proposed and would you consider it ‘complete?’ Does it relate directly to the fan experience?
Creativity & Originality
Is the hack simply stats on a page, or did it provide something you haven’t seen before? Is it a twist on something you have seen, but in a better way?
Is the hack something people would actually use? Does it fulfill a real need people might have?
Is the user experience smooth? Does everything appear to work as expected? Is it beautifully designed?
Is the hack technically interesting or difficult? Is it just some lipstick on an API, or are there real technical challenges you feel needed to implement the hack?
