    • storage?
  • any other info you want the judges to know (motivations/ideas/process)

Judges

We have assembled an All Star Judging Panel:

Judges

They will be looking for a few things, including:

  • creativity/inventiveness
  • functions correctly/smoothly
  • visually pleasing
  • technically impressive
  • use of Supabase features
    • deep usage of a single feature or
    • broad usage are both ok
  • FUN! 😃

Rules

  • Team size 1-5 (all team members on winning teams will receive a prize)
  • You cannot be in multiple teams
  • One submission per team
  • All design elements, code, etc. for your project must be created during the event
  • All entries must be Open Source (link to source code required in entry)
  • Must use Supabase in some capacity
  • Can be any language or framework
  • You must submit before the deadline (no late entries)
  • You can continue to make updates to your project after the submission deadline, but there is no guarantee that the judges will see additions made after the submission time.
