Why should I take part in this competition:
In the magazine "Page" there was the following quote from a designer about this: "We have been in agreement for some years that there is no cheaper advertising than participation in design competitions. How much more would we have to spend without this simple method in order to attract attention! And what's nicer than the accolade of collegues?"
