3> Relevance to region where you belong
4> Finishing and appeal of the app

Judgement & Awards:
First Round: At most 10 apps from each of the 3 categories in all 6 regions (at most 30 apps total per region) will move to the semi-finals. Applications will be evaluated and ranked by a team of Google-selected internal and external judges.
Semi-Finals: Those developers whose applications are selected for the semi-finals will have about one month to improve their applications (add features, improve stability, performance, etc). By October 25th, developers in the semi-finals will submit the final versions of their apps for judgement.
At the end of the judgement period, all applications in each region and category will be evaluated and ranked by a team of Google-selected judges and announced on November 12th.
Prizes will be distributed as follows (all prizes are in USD):
Round One: All teams that make it to the semi-finals in each category in each region will be awarded Chromebooks.
Round One: In order to encourage participation from women and highlight innovations from women in the developing markets, Google will award an additional prize. If a Semi-Finalist happens to be an individual or a team consisting solely of women, that team will be awarded an additional prize of $1000 USD.
Round One: Any university team made up entirely of student or staff of a university (identified by the university domain email address) that makes it to the semi-finals will get $1,000.
Semi-Finals: 1st prize in each category in each region will receive $20,000. This means that there will be a total of 18 grand prize winners.
