DESIGNER/ARTIST CATEGORY


All Entries will be judged according to the following equally weighted Judging Criteria.

  • DESIGN SOLUTION: Aesthetics as well as a sensitivity to form following function. The design must not only be visually appealing but be purposeful in its form factor and highly usable by the intended users.
  • INNOVATIVENESS: What is the big idea relating to green computing technology? How profound is the idea and how innovative is the solution from a green computing technology product design perspective?
  • FEASIBILITY & CONCEPT VALIDATION: How realistic is it? Can it be manufactured in the near term or long term under green manufacturing constraints? Did the entrant do a sufficient amount of investigation regarding what is possible from a functional and manufacturing perspective? Are the research sources cited, varied, and valid? Did the entrant provide proper citations and credit for research and intellectual property referenced?
  • GOOD USE OF COMPONENTS: How good and innovative is the use and implementation of the e-waste components, based on the "Submission Component Point Values" chart.
  • UTILIZATION OF GREEN ASSESSMENT TOOLS: Did the entrant make good use of assessment tools such as Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and other green validation and product development process tools that provide guidelines and standards for current thinking and current regulation for environmental product designs and manufacturing?
  • DOCUMENTATION OF PROCESS AND METHODOLOGY: How well has the entrant captured the process of creating the final design solution?
  • PRESENTATION: Has the entrant effectively presented the concept? Are entry materials neat and well-organized? Has the entrant made effective use of visualization tools? How well did the entrant communicate the ideas and solution using text and imagery? How well did the entrant make use of media to express ideas?
