App Competition Rules
- The App Competition is open to all current IC students
- There is no entry fee
- Teams can have between 3 and 5 members
- A student can only be on one team
- In order to encourage interdisciplinary collaboration, a team cannot be made up to students who all have the same major. That is, a team must be represented by a minimum of two majors.
- An "app" can be any web-based or native software application for computers, tablets, or mobile devices.
- A proposed idea for an app must not have been worked on in earnest prior to the competition (e.g., designed or developed). You should contact the organizing committee as early as possible if think that you may be in violation of this rule. The committee will then make a ruling on whether you are permitted to develop your app as part of the competition.
- A panel of judges will be assembled from professors, alumni, and local professionals with experience related to app development
- Judges will not be members of the organizing committee
- Judges will be evaluating the apps based on creativity, purpose, potential, and viability as a successful application
- Each team will be given 3-5 minutes to present their app followed by a short Q&A session with the judges. The judges will also be given to opportunity to demo each app in person
- $1750 in total prizes: $1000 for first place, $500 for second place, $250 for third place
- Prize money may be redistributed based on the number of teams
- Team members decide how to split the prize money
Copyright & Intellectual Property:
- Your app must only include material (including source code – both open source and third party sourced, user interface, music, video or images) that you own or that you have permission from the copyright/trademark owner to use
- Any issues of intellectual property ownership of the result for your team’s participation in the competition will be decided by the members of the team
