Voting will count toward 40% of the final decision. The remaining 60% will be determined by a panel of judges who will score the videos based on 1) feasibility 2) originality of the idea 3) organization of plan and execution and 4) community impact.

Winners will be announced on June 20, 2014 during Engadget Live Austin. Winners will also be notified via phone or email and announced on social media channels.

To eliminate bias for what is anticipated to be a very visible & competitive contest, a broad base of judges will be recruited to reflect communities that have helped re:3D reach 100+ deliveries of Gigabots including Start-Up Chile, Pascal Finette, the Santiago Makerspace , the Houston Clear Lake Library (owners of Gigabot #100), YouNoodle, 3D Hubs, and more!

One Gigabot kit will be given away (retail value $5,950). Shipping to the winner’s preferred address will be included.
If we receive more than 50 qualified entries to the contest, we will give away a 2nd Gigabot (retail value $5,950) to a “People’s Choice” entry for the video that received the most votes.

Some Legal Stuff:
- re:3D and the panel of guest judges reserves the right to remove any video at their discretion. Abide by the guidelines, and all will be fine. re:3D retains the right to use any video submission in promotional or marketing material without giving compensation or receiving prior approval from the entrant. re:3D will send a Gigabot (including shipping) to the winner at the preferred address in August. re:3D will not be liable for providing additional or replacement parts. The winner will however be able to purchase additional filament and parts at their discretion via the re:3D online store.
