HOW IS MY ENTRY JUDGED?

A judging committee from industry leaders, associations and partners will select the best 10 projects to be showcased at GITEX Technology Week
Projects will be judged on the following criteria:

  • Innovations and Design (45%)
  • Impact and Usability in real life (35%)
  • Quality of the presentation and technical details of the solution (20%)


For the top 3 prizes, this will be determined by a combination of a live audience voting at the event (10% of the score) and the judges score (90% of the score)

RESPONSIBILITY OF THE STUDENTS ONSITE @ GITEX

Students must be at GITEX Student Lab Hall to set up their project showcase area on 14th – 15th October 2016.

Students are recommended to be at their showcase area from 16th – 20nd October 2016 if they prefer to meet with visitors and talk to them about their innovations.
