Is all the data in this challenge Open by the Open Definition? (CC-BY/CC0)
Is all the software OSI-compliant?
Are all the entries fully Open?
Are all the results fully Open?
Is the process of judging Open?

If not, I would doubt this is appropriate for an Open list. There sees to
be no benefit for the Open community and no promotion of the Open ideal.
