I finally updated the Prizes page with the actual cash prize amounts. Probably would have been more hype to have these posted before the end of the contest, but here they are!
Thanks for all the valuable feedback everyone! We've taken note of what you liked and didn't like about the 2017 IGMC and will work on improving the next event. Even though this was the smallest IGMC event in terms of turnout, it's definitely had the highest engagement from the community which...
