Cecilijah King won, Enthony Titus came second and Hendrina Hailwa third.

Nam Acting was founded in 2014 by Selima Henock and Abraham Pieters with the main purpose of equipping actors with excellence.
Henock says: "After aspiring actors go through a workshop, they become members of Nam Acting whereby we add them on our WhatsApp group and constantly share information and opportunities in the industry.
"So far we have engaged close to 100 aspiring actors, with most getting opportunities in the industry through Nam Acting."
