Judges and deadlines for #PoweredByTweets: The Challenge

Thursday, 7 May 2015

With a month to go to the deadline for #PoweredByTweets: The Challenge, there’s still time to get on your thinking cap and get your entry in. And today, we’re excited to tell you who the judges are.

They are drawn from the world of design and technology and they’re looking for great ideas that either solve a problem or create something beautiful. The requirements are minimal: your idea needs to be powered by Tweets.

Your idea could just be one sentence. For example: “I wish I could get a Tweet to tell me what I can cook for dinner”. The entries that impress our judges will be built and then featured in a flagship exhibition during the London Design Festival.

And the judges are:

  1. Ben Evans - Director, London Design Festival Judges and deadlines for #PoweredByTweets: The Challenge
  2. Ben Terrett (@benterrett) - Director of Design, Government Digital Service Judges and deadlines for #PoweredByTweets: The Challenge
