The following teams received awards half way through the 24-hour challenge for their achievements.

‘The Documenters’ award goes to ULTIMATE TEAM FINGUTAS FEAT. CAP. LYLE (RADIO EDIT) for their very entertaining and well-edited video documentation about their progress. Take a look at them getting lost in Australia, or the video entries ‘What do you mean, Melbourne‘, ‘Enter Lyle‘ for a taste of their video editing genius.

‘The Theorists’ award goes to TEAM TECHNOPHOBICS for grounding their work in theory, e.g. on communication and cultures and spitting out references already in the first quarter into the challenge. We love seeing references to theory!

‘The Whiteboarders’ award goes to TEAM SCANDINATIVES in Aarhus, Denmark not only for using whiteboards that look like holographic displays, but also for using many of them. Although, TEAM TECHNOPHOBICS is on their heels

‘The Late-starters’ award goes to TEAM CHALKBUSTERS who only got into the challenge 6 hours in, but made what looks like pretty good progress very quickly. And chalk in many ways beats whiteboards, which would deserve some award as well!
