Tracks and Prizes
← Back to Home
The judging process involved a panel of technical judges and a panel of non-technical judges, both within and outside the Flow Ecosystem. The panel will conduct 3 rounds of judging along the criteria below: a technical round, a non-technical round, and a final prize selection round. Projects will be ranked by score, and prizes will be distributed so as to award prizes to as many different projects as possible (vs. concentrating prizes on the top projects).
There are a total of five criteria which projects will be assessed against:
- Innovation and Originality - 8 points
- Technical Complexity and Execution - 8 points
- Integration and Composability - 8 points
- Real-world Impact and Usefulness - 8 points
- User Experience and Accessibility - 8 points
❗Each criterion will be scored on a range of 1 to 8, with the maximum score possible being 40.
Note: exact judging criteria subject to change ahead of the official hackathon submission period.
Cross-Track Judging Bonuses
Aside from the tracks, there will be cross-track bonuses applied for submissions that follow certain criteria:
- Fully on-chain logic (3 points): The main business logic is implemented through smart-contracts, without backend services.
- Mainstream adoption(3 points): Using Walletless Onboarding & Hybrid Custody
- NFT Frontiers(3 points): A NFT on Flow is more than a simple ledger entry; it’s a unit of programmable code stored as a Resource. Dynamic attributes, algorithmic behaviors, NFT specific or NFT-to-NFT interaction logic: this unexplored territory is open for limitless creativity!
- Extend the Ecosystem(3 points): Embrace the power of Flow blockchain and create innovative Flow-only projects that leverage the unparalleled performance and scalability of the platform.
- All projects must be built on / or use Flow Blockchain in some capacity.
- The focus of this hackathon is on-chain logic - so definitely focus on your smart contracts!
- Please make sure that your idea is innovative and impactful, especially for mainstream users.
- See Submission Requirements for submission requirements
- The judgment will be based on
- If your project is in working condition or not
- If your project is live on Flow testnet
- If your project has innovation and impact according to the hackathon’s main theme (on-chain logic) as well as individual tracks
- If the presentation is up to the mark like a precise presentation deck and a short but understandable demo video
- If the project has ongoing github contributions (across multiple days, by multiple people if on a team) throughout the hackathon period.
