  • Here is MCA-I NY choice

    8 millennium goals?

    A documentary film festival?

    Quotation relates to spoken word. Film is a visual discipline able to tell stories without a single word. I really can't believe all the fuss was made over that design.

  • Yeah right

    Communication


    Some people say that Design21 didn't give main prize because MCA-I NY and the UN made an intervention which according to them falls under: "tampering, unauthorized intervention, fraud, technical failures or other causes beyond its control corrupt the administration, security, fairness, integrity or proper play of the Competition."

    I'll believe in that when I see Design21 suing MCA-I NY and the UN. Until than I believe to none of the 3 parties responsible for organizing of contest and their official explanations. I'm not even among finalists picked by jury but I'm still protesting because I find it shameful and dishonest towards all the participants.

    5000$ is nothing compared to price they'll have to pay to reestablish trust and reputation after this farce.

  • Question (edited)

    Communication


    Can someone please explain me what happened to main prize of SFTF design contest? Official announcement says Media Communications Association International, New York Chapter picked different designs than one selected by jury.

    Even if that is so, why isn't list of those selected designs published and further more, if main prize wasn't to be paid by Media Communications Association International, New York Chapter than how can organizers of contest add that sum to their next contest if they're not going to cooperate with Media Communications Association International, New York Chapter anymore?

    I think that I speak in the name of all entrants when I say:

    1. I want to see list of designs picked by Media Communications Association International, New York Chapter

    2. I want to know who was supposed to pay those 5000$ to winner.

    3. If organizers were supposed to pay that sum than what prevents them from doing so?

    4. If organizers can add that sum as they claim to next competition than why can't they pay it to design that was selected by their jury.

    Perhaps not all entrants are aware of it, but main prize was publicly and officially promised and therefore not fulfilling promise from design contest regulations is a criminal offense!

    I'm not sure whose to blame but I sure do hope some of the entrants know some good lawyer who will bring this farce out to light for the sake of justice. Any internal misunderstandings and conflicts between parties involved in organization of contest are not val...
