Croatian guitarist Josko Sevo has walked away with $10,000 in prize money after winning the Tallenge Annual Contest..
Sevo uploaded his guitar instrumental entry for the music instrumental contest, Orient Express, on Tallenge in July 2013., and after receiving more than 27,000 votes from all over the globe, he was announced the winner of the Tallenge contest on 1 January 2014.
Sevo, who beat YouTube superstars such as Paul Koudouris (a musician from USA), Pempi (a comedian from Hungary) and Czech dancer Jaja Vankova in the annual contest which had over 30,000 entries, praised the contest organisers.
“Tallenge is new for me. I haven’t been here long, but what I see is a very diverse selection of categories. Variety breaks the monotony. It is interesting for any generation. Frankly, there are few who give money and don’t ask anything! That for me is unique!” said Josko.
