No, we don't have set of evaluators/judges. It's pretty early stages and
the point of the July workshop is discuss and hear proposals for how to
evaluate for the prize. We are certainly open to have more people and
organizations involved.

I agree. My goal is that anybody who is interested can be involved in the
evaluation process in some way. If this is a very large group of people
I'll consider that a good problem.

Yes, this has come up. Multiple awards is certainly a possibility, others
have suggested limiting the scope to just phone applications since this
seems like the use case people are most interested in, others have
suggested that solutions which have compatible implementations on multiple
platforms should get bonus points.

Overall I'd stress that there is still a lot of flexibility to shape this
based on what the community thinks is most important to evaluate.
