The best works were awarded in the concluding day.

The winners of the video category were awarded a Canon EOS 5D Mark IV DSLR Camera, while the second and third runners-up each received a Canon EOS 4000D semi-DSLRs along with an 18-55 III lens.

While the winners of the photography category were awarded with an iPhone X S Max, while the second and third runners-up each received Android phones.
