Participants must create a submission that includes the following components.
The Submission must be accompanied by a short description in English of approximately 200 words.
The submission can be anything that provides new representations or insights using GBIF-mediated data. This could likely involve a range of results: websites, stand-alone or mobile applications, or outputs of analyses. Likewise, the submission could seek to improve any number of issues or processes, including (but not limited to) data analysis or visualization, data workflows, uploading, or annotations. The judges must be able to access the submission at no cost or perform the same analysis/visualization using comparable alternative sources of data.
If the submission is a stand-alone application then it must operate on hardware readily available to the judges.
If the submission is a mobile app then the submission must enable the judges to access the solution, either by making it publicly available in an app store, by sending the .apk file (Android), or making it available using TestFlight (iOS) https://www.testflightapp.com.
If the submission is the output of an analysis then the analysis must be repeatable, with the submission including sufficient detail for repetition.
Video or screenshots
All submissions should be accompanied either by a video that demonstrates the submission, or screenshots of the submission. If the video is uploaded to an external site such as YouTube or Vimeo, then the submission must include a link to that video. A package of screenshots should be made available for the judges through a zip archive posted on Dropbox, OneDrive, or some other cloud-based file-sharing service.
