Every project must have a clear end or completion
Social projects are for social causes or financial help appeals. Each social project should address a real need for society.
A disaster relief campaign, an animal shelter project, a community education center are all examples of causes that would require support from backers.
In case the social project is a financial help appeal then these appeals must be clear on what they are required for.
An example would be medical expenses, school fees, funds for marriage, etc.
A financial help appeal has to be compelling with enough reason for backers to understand that it is of vital importance and that you cannot afford it on your own.
A creative project must have a clear end. An example would be, making an album or a film, designing a new video game, writing/directing a play, etc.
A project should eventually be completed, and something is produced as a result.
For projects that involve hardware and product design:
Please, show your work
You must be clear about their state of development, and cannot be presented as preorders of finished products. Projects must show details (photos, videos, sketches) of their progress so far, along with a prototype demonstrating the product’s current functionality. Projects must explain how the final design is likely to differ from the prototype, and include a production plan (i.e., how you’re going to make it) and an estimated timeline.
No product simulations or photorealistic renderings
Technical drawings, CAD designs, sketches, and other parts of the design process are awesome and encouraged. Photorealistic renderings and simulations that could be mistaken for finished products or real events, however, are not allowed.
