    So what you are saying is that you were still a loser in all of the categories? Or just always a bridesmaid, never a bride when it comes to deisgn?

      Hi Anoymous coward;) I don’t consider placing four semi-final categories in design as a loss. Besides, I have several design awards to celebrate from past National and Regional contests. Many designers who submitted didn’t place at all. I also consider them winners. When we have happy clients that also makes us winners. Thanks for your post.
