Scoring and Judging
Each design must adhere to the current competition theme - 'DESIGN FOR GREEN EARTH'.
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 contest will be judged on 2 levels.
Level 1 - A panel of qualified judges from academics and industries will shortlist top 25 entries for the best 3D product based on the online submissions under different categories on or before 7th April, 2018. Level 2 - Based on the recommendation of the level 1 final judgement for first three products with few additional best products are finalized by a panel of experts.
Based on the recommendation of level 2, final result announcement of the contest will be displayed in the website on 21st April, 2018.
