SCORING & JUDGING

The design team's total score is based on the ingenuity of the design, research and development process as presented, the value and potential impact of the design, and the ability to communicate or demonstrate the features and value of the design and design approach.
The Challenge will be judged on 2 levels.
Level 1 - A panel of qualified judges will select top 10 entries for the best Consumer product based on the online submissions. The teams will be invited to the final event to be conducted in the month of November 2016 in Dubai, UAE.
