Submissions will be evaluated by a judging panel. The judging panel will recommend up to 10 Phase 1 winners based on the official evaluation criteria. Information about the judging panel will be added soon.

When evaluating submissions, the judging panel assigns each submission 1 to 5 (5 being the highest; 1 being the lowest) points for each of the seven criteria, for a maximum of 35 points.

Depending on the volume of entries, submissions may initially be evaluated by a multidisciplinary group of technical reviewers.
