About

Bounty Judges for Sponsors have established specific criteria for assessing submissions related to their bounties. These criteria are outlined in the respective bounty descriptions available on Devfolio.

It is the responsibility of the sponsors to ensure that all teams who submit projects for their bounties receive a thorough review. During Saturday's Sponsor Judging time, participating teams are expected to visit the designated sponsors' tables located on the #BUIDL Floor, where they will present their projects to the respective sponsors. Each sponsor will inform the presenting team of the allotted presentation time, which typically ranges from two to five minutes per team. Should a team choose not to present their project in person, the sponsor will evaluate it solely based on the submitted materials.

In situations where no project meets the criteria to qualify for a bounty award, sponsors are still obligated to provide feedback explaining the general reasons for disqualification at the bounty level, rather than targeting specific projects. This underscores the importance of teams being present on the floor during Saturday to engage with sponsors if they seek direct feedback.

After completing their evaluations, judges will submit the names of the bounty winner(s) through the Devfolio platform. The announcement of the winners will be made on the ETHDenver website as soon as they are confirmed.
