I already created a news item about it this morning, actually - I was excited about the win!

Joel and Sami were kind enough to invite me to the awards ceremony, so I got to see the whole thing in person. It was both surreal and awesome to see them get the big prize, especially after the parade of mobile apps that won the smaller prizes. And then the news crews showed up... :)

Joel and Sami - congratulations again!

This is great news, congratulations Joel and Sami! And a rather decent
prize money too :-) [1]

We should have a news item on this on the website but I have to rush now
... (maybe you want to write it? you should have all necessary permissions)

Well done!
