– PIPA Popular Vote Online 2014, in which the winner is Diego de Santos, the most voted artist in the second round on the voting that happened here at the website.
He will receive a R$5,000 prize.
– PIPA Online 2014 – for this category only the top five voted artists, on the second round were running for. They were: Diego de Santos, Fernando Mendonça, Daniel Escobar, Toz and
Paulo Nimer Pjota.
