Questions and queries

We received a couple of emails yesterday from people asking about prizes, so thought we'd help clear that up.
What the main prize will actually entail is entirely up to you. Each entrant will submit a nomination for a prize they would like to win. We will gather up all these nominations and then open it to the public vote. Using a FPTP system, we will then attempt to achieve this prize for the winners. (Entrants, please bear in mind there is only a limited budget for the prize and artistic licence may be used in the representation of your prize.)
A selection of design books will also be issued to the winners and to other entries at the judges discretion. The three finalists will also each receive design magazine subscriptions and other small prizes. We are also negotiating a couple of interesting opportunities for student placement prizes with a couple of design firms and will say more about that once they have been confirmed.
The winner and selected entries will recieve coverage in the design/ art press and a book of all the entries will be presented to the new government and to the body who supervise the electoral system. The Vote for a Change campaign are also currently looking at a touring exhibition of the work and we will confirm this next week.
