There were both a dedicated section on the PLUGGY website and a social media campaign so that the participants could find all the needed information. Finally, the App Challenge committee chose the six finalists who get 1000 euros each. The final winner, who will get extra 4000 euros, will be announced after public voting during the PLUGGY Final Event that will be held on 20th November 2019 in Athens, Greece.
