And the winner is….

…Team 1 !

Over the last few weeks with no exception, all teams have been eager to learn about mobile storytelling, creative in getting individual ideas to solid team concepts, cooperative and communicative with teammates overseas and persistent in making this challenge a complete success!

Each team has surprised the jury with unexpected thoughts and ideas, a drive towards social interaction, out of the box plans for integrating key aspects of the picnic festival and a most varied mix of presentations, blog posts and last but not least well crafted scenes in the 7scenes platform.

After the challenge was closed, the jury read carefully all contributions and viewed the scenes. The field of contestants was narrowed down to three competitors and after long consideration the jury decided to choose team 1 with their concept “Design – Detect – Decode”, as winner of the Best Scene in Town @ Picnic ’10 challenge! Team 1 consists of Julynn Benedetti, George Bixby, both from Parsons, Olga Paraskevopoulou from University of Amsterdam and Gabriel van Vemde, Hogeschool van Amsterdam.

The jury claims that the winning team achieved very good results on all essential aspects of the challenge.
