When should we post our solution?

Please check the timeline for the period of posting your solution. But we strongly advise not to wait until the last 3 hours of submission time due to heavy Internet traffic. Also, we advise you to submit the First Round solution early so that you can get feedback form the community and edit your idea by the submission end date.

How will solutions be graded?

Once the competition phase closes, your solution’s public information (e.g. for the First Round it is title and presentation) will be voted on by registered C:F users. Your full solution will also be reviewed by expert judges according to judging criteria in each round. Top 10 solutions by number of votes and all teams that receive minimum 60/100 points by expert judges will advance to next round.

Who can comment on our submission?

Registered C:F users will be able to comment on your submission. You and your teammates can reward good comments by marking them as helpful and by this you will also receive sparks. After the voting phase ends, you will also be able to see feedback provided by the judges in your project room.
