The competition for photographers, musicians and film makers in the UK, France and Germany, gave nominees a chance to win €5,000 cash prize and technology prizes. As a promotion for the G-Technology storage device brand, participants submitted a creative project created in 2009 or 2010 in the three categories with a chance to win either the cash prize or the company's 4TB G-Raid dual-drive dependable storage system. Tetteh-Lartey received a G-Technology G-Raid drive for his winning entry for the song "You Can't Hide". He received his award at the gala celebration which opened the exclusive exhibition at London's Brick Lane Gallery.
Introduced by the legendary album producer Kipper, Tetteh-Lartey provided a live performance for the gala event attendees. Tetteh-Lartey had been looking forward to meeting competition judge Kipper, who has produced albums for Sting and Stevie Wonder amongst many other famous recording artist names...only to discover that Kipper had been looking forward to meeting him on the night!
