What language should I use for the app entered into the Challenge?

Apps submitted must have English language support, and multiple language support is allowed as well.


What APIs or datasets can I include in my solution?

You may use whatever APIs, SDKs, and datasets you choose, as long as you are authorized to use and distribute them.


Why do I have to upload a video?

A video helps ensure that all users can view and experience your solution. The video will also be helpful to the panel of judges. You may create a screencast or use a handheld video camera to make your video, or choose any other method that captures the solution’s value and user interface.


What should I put in my video?

Aside from your actual app, your submission video at end of round 2 is one of the most important parts of your entry. In fact, it’s often one of the first, and sometimes only, things that judges and voters view. Make a great first impression by following these tips on what to include in your video:

  • Include a step-by-step demo.Demonstrate your app’s key features by showing them functioning on an appropriate device. While audio isn’t required, narration or text bubbles can help judges and voters understand your solution.
  • Keep it simple.Your video shouldn’t be longer than two-three minutes. In the words of Leonardo da Vinci, “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”
  • Don’t wait until the last minute to upload your video.Keep in mind that the time it takes to upload/process a video on YouTube, Vimeo, or Youku varies greatly depending on the format of your original video, the file size, upload traffic and Internet connection speed, and could take anywhere from a few minutes to several hours or more.


Should the app be submitted to Epson Moverio Apps Market to compete for the Round 2 or Round 3 of the Challenge?
