Judging Criteria
Our expert independent judges will pick the best app submitted to their category by scoring on three criteria from 1-5. Two of the criteria are shared across all categories (Uniqueness & User Experience), and one will be unique to the category.

The highest cumulative score in each category will be the winner, the second highest, second place, the third highest, third place. Ties will be broken at the judge's discretion.
