Judgment criteria

We will judge submissions based on three criteria:

  • Skill - Is your project well-constructed and does it highlight your skill set?
  • Creativity - Is your project a representation of your unique aesthetic or artistic vision?
  • Inspiration - Will your project inspire others to don a tool belt and attempt their own DIY project?
