They received over 2,200 submissions from 35 countries.  6 months later, we’re pleased to announce that  5 winners have emerged and two are Nigerians; Eseoghene Odiete and Eric Obuh (aka Vocal Slender).
The winners were picked by a panel of judges after a shortlist of public votes. The winners will go home with $25,000 each and they will have an opportunity to work with a Google sponsor over the next 6 months.
