The first round of the Challenge was run and we had five finalists come to Sydney to pitch their project at the Summit. For the curious, take a look at all of the entries – these folks are clever!

Enjoy the power of LOD!

Better yet, the finalists pitched to us again on Monday afternoon, which made it even harder to choose. In the end, the organisers and sponsors settled on giving two prizes, rather than three. The Netherlands Institute for Sound & Vision prize for multimedia was split across the overall grand prize (supported by all our sponsors) and the open prize (supported by Synaptica).

Our winners were:

Grand Prize USD$2,500: Open Memory
Open Prize USD$1,500: Polimedia
