Adjudicators will be evaluating projects based on the completeness, cohesiveness and conciseness of the solution design. Adjudication Criteria is the same for all, but the weighting distribution will be different based on the medium / format.
|Completeness||The project solves the problem or adds value.
The complete solution proposal should be able to articulate the problem statement, solution overview, implementation plan, and its potential impact.
|Cohesiveness||The presented materials make sense altogether.
A cohesive solution proposal should provide a clear, integrated, and comprehensive overview of the proposed solution, such as the integration of technical and non-technical components. The proposal should have a logical flow, with each element building on the previous one and leading to a clear understanding of the proposed solution.
|Conciseness||The presented material is straight-to-the-point.
The conciseness of a solution proposal refers to the extent to which the proposal is clear, precise, and to the point, with no unnecessary information or details. A concise proposal should provide all the necessary information about the proposed blockchain solution in a clear and succinct manner, without unnecessary elaboration or repetition.
