How innovative / new is your idea. Are you just the next generic social app or are you creating something groundbreaking new?
How difficult was this hack to be implemented. Is it just a simple website or are you solving a technical problem that nobody ever solved?
Design / UX
How is the design and the user experience of the hack. How polished does the project appear? Does it show issues?
Is it a useful hack? How wide are the applications? Is it just something that helps you or will more people use it?
How well is the presentation during the fair by the team.
