    Hi all!
    I summarize here some of the question that more frequently come up these days regarding the app submission.

    Q1. How can I edit my submission?
    A1. You can edit the app profile you have created by going to appcircus.com, logging in with your appcircus user account and clicking on “edit my profile” (your app should appear there).

    Q2. Can I only add 3 screenshot while submitting my app?
    A2. During the app submission here we have simplified the process and only ask for 3 screenshots. If you want to add more you can do so in the appcircus.com, editing your app profile as explained above.

    Q3. Can I still submit an app if I have missed the idea deadline?
    A3. Yes, idea feedback was not obligatory, you can still submit your app until November 16.

    Q4. When will my app appear online?
    A4. After the submissions are closed all apps will be validated and appear online in order to start with the public voting.

    Q5. What are the cash prizes?
    A5. We have 3 cash prizes of $3000, $2000 and $1000 for the first 3 winners, plus a $450 prize for the popular voting winner.

    Q6. What are the evaluation criteria?
    A6. Evaluation will be based on how your app addresses the problem, the innovativeness/originality of it, the user experience it offers, the technical feasibility and quality of the app etc.

    If you have more questions please post them here and I will try to answer to you as soon as possible!!
    Good luck!!

    Public voting will start after the submission period has closed, after all apps are received, it will start on November 19th and will be open for 10 days. After that, only the 10 finalists (9 chosen by jury + public voting winner) will be called to present their apps live and compete for the final prizes.

    Hi Mario,
    What do you mean by approval period? You don’t have to have you app in the AppStore in order to participate in the competition, you just submit the info, screenshots and videos and create your online app profile for evaluation here: http://cairo.hackathome.com/apps/submit/
