Croat Wins ‘Earths Largest Talent Contest’

Josko SevoCroatian 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.

Tallenge  is a world-class competitive platform for talented individuals from around the world. Winners for the contests that they conduct are decided based on a voting system – the entry which receives maximum votes on the contest ending date, wins the contest. With participants from over 130 countries in the world, over 20 open categories including performing arts, visual arts, literature, technology and business; thousands of dollars in prize money, Tallenge is Earth’s Largest Talent Platform.
