To judge the competition this year, the Learning Zone enlisted the help of two judges.

We'd like to introduce them to you now:

Wolfgang Weicht

Wolfgang is the Open Innovation Manager at TEDx Rhein Main, based in Frankfurt, Germany.

TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. The annual TED Conference invites the world’s leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes. Their talks are then made available, free, at TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Al Gore, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Isabel Allende and UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group.

"Thanks for asking me to participate - it was fun to judge the many great entries!"

Max Kübler

Max is production manager at Deck 13 Interactive, an award-winning games development company based in Frankfurt, Germany.

Deck 13 are responsible for big-name, triple-A video games, such as Lords of the FallenTransOcean and, most recently, The Surge.

Max also had some help from his team at Deck 13 with the harder-to-judge categories!

That's it for this year!

Thanks again to everyone who entered and keep an eye on the L-Zone for future competitions!
