At the ModelOff 2015 Finals Awards Ceremony on 3 December 2015, Australian Joseph Lau was crowned the new Financial Modeling World Champion, securing the Golden Keyboard Award as well as £10,000. At 43, he’s the most experienced Finalist of all, and lived up to his nickname ‘The Fine Wine‘ – he just keeps getting better with age. Runner-up was Dutchman Willem Gerritsen, also known as ‘The Athlete‘. In his second ModelOff Finals Willem picked up £5,000. 3rd Place and £3,000 went to Alvin ‘Winning‘ Woon from Hong Kong, amazingly his third podium finish in three consecutive appearances in the Finals. 2014 Champion Diarmuid Early, ‘The Diamond‘ from Ireland claimed the Innovation Award in stunning fashion by finishing one of the 30-minute challenges in only 15 minutes – he was also the only Finalist to score 100% on this section.
