Judging is a highly subjective process, but Fishackathon.co encourages each host city's local panel judges to use the criteria below as a framework for their discussion. They're mindful that their selection represents their city's best at the global judging. Each local host site's judging panel should be about 3 -5 individuals representing fisheries experts and technology experts. Judging will be based by the following criteria:
Quality of Idea:
0: The solution is not unique or innovative
1: The solution provides a better/faster/clearer way to solve the problem.
2: The new project solves a problem that has been overlooked/ignored in the past, or solves a problem with a new angle/on a bigger scale/on a higher level.
3: The solution addresses the problem at a deeper level, making existing solutions/efforts unnecessary through disruption
0: Problem is not relevant to sustainable fisheries.
1: Solutions addresses a relevant problem for sustainable fisheries, but it is diffcult to implement or scale and the team does not have a clear plan to move the project forward.
2: Solutions addresses a relevant problem for sustainable fisheries, and it is hard to implement or scale, but the team have a clear plan to move the project forward.
3: Solution has a predictably sustainable lifecycle and can easily be scaled.
0: Not usable.
1: Usable but it is not intuitive without clear instructions
2: Usable and clear without instructions
3: Both intuitive and visually appealing
A panel, selected by and for the host city, of (minimum of 3) judges will use the criteria above to select a finalist for consideration of the global Fishackathon prizes at the end of the weekend.
