This week’s installment of The Download told you the winners of the early-stage pitch competition at Distilled Intelligence, a venture capital contest now in its second year.

But those were only the first-day prizes.

Friday’s winners in the seed-stage competition were announced after Capital Business went to press.The companies were seeking as much as $100,000 from the room of investors.

Meet the top three winners:

Cont3nt.com won the top prize:A check for $35,000. The company bills itself as “an eBay for breaking news,” allowing media companies and freelance journalists to upload photos and video that news organizations can then purchase.

●Second-place finisher Aquicore aims to help residential and commercial property owners save on their energy bills and maintenace cost by monitoring and suggesting ways to reduce usage. The firm collected $10,000.

Kahnoodle took home the third-place title and a check for $5,000. The start-up provides couples with a place to swap thank you notes, find deals on date activities, keep a private relationship journal and receive reminders on how to keep the relationship fresh.

The money comes from the coffers of event organizer Fortify.vc and includes an equity stake in the winning ventures.
