How technically impressive was the hack? Was the technical problem that the team tackled difficult? Did it use a particularly clever technique or did it use many components? Did the technology involved make you go "Wow"?
Idea & Innovation
How good is the idea? Is something new? Is an application that is already on the market and does not add anything new?
Did the team stretch themselves? Did they try to learn something new? What kind of projects have they worked on before?
