Both of the winners received the prize money of US$1000, Truppr Design Challenge tees, Truppr hoodies (limited edition), and of course bragging rights.
The other participants were not left hanging. They all got Truppr design challenge tees, priority access to design classes and priority access to CodeCamp 2016.
