  • SFTF, a happy ending...

    Communication


    Dear fellow designers,

    As you may have learned already, D21 took the righteous decision of proceeding with the SFTF competition. I believe this is what most of the discontented participants were hoping for. Our posted protesting views were not ignored therefore we ought to support D21 in whatever way they see fit to wrap up this competition. In their last letter, D21 brandished a firm stand against the alleged MCAI’s misconduct and affirmed their committed position towards the members, the jury and the set regulations reclaiming the integrity of this competition and hopefully securing it for all future ones to come. Thank you D21! That being said, I wish all of you the best of luck in the new selection to come!

  • Hey everyone,

    Please find in the link below an update letter from Mr.Haruko Smith Director of Design21 about the Stories from the Field contest disentanglement... http://www.design21sdn.com/share/1240


  • I would address this post to 3 parties: The winning team 802, D21 and the jury panel. Addressing MCAI would be highly futile at this time as it seems to me they have long parted this whole competition to form another little one of their own, parasiting on D21 for organization and exposure and actually getting away with it totally gratuitously, not one cent peering out of their pockets. Cynically, the big round of applause really goes to them and a documentary film should be made about how they contrived this masquerade of a competition. It should be screened at the next Stories from the Field festival and a special prize for sabotaging achievement should be awarded to MCAI just as their representatives huddle excitedly on stage and one takes the microphone to repeat an eye watering heartrending soundbite: “But being poor doesn't stop us from wanting the best!”

    Now on to the noteworthy…

    I want to congratulate the winning Swedish team 802 for being picked, sadly by MCAI, but who cares. Whichever aspect of their design is criticized, I expect in the euphoria of the win, their response will be: “bite me!” Thus one can’t refrain from laying down his point of view from a constructive perspective, hoping to be taken as a mere fellow designer’s opinion, to be instantly discarded at 802’s discretion. A lot was said about the design not cleaving to the clear criteria set in the competition brief which is undoubtedly true, but let’s set that aside for we all know it is a designe...
