    What is wrong with Arch Daily? This competition seems not endorsed by any official organization in UK. Simply, utterly amazed by people who pulls this kind of fraudulent act.

      you are obviously not a creative or an artist. What is a competition to encourage us creatives and with a prize got to do with fraud? It is an interesting competition and has got the endorsement it needs (us creatives). I will enter the competition not just for the money to push myself as artist.

      Does it also mean that as a designer, because one of the large commercial company has not bought into my designs, then I should stop designing or stop being creative? People like you annoy me and have no interest or understand the arts only driven by commerce plus stop young designers from dreaming.

      Arch Daily keep up the great work.
