Prize of the Public

In the two weeks before the jury gathering, the general public had the opportunity to vote for the Prize of the Public through SCIA’s Facebook page. The voting closed with the start of the jury gathering.

This initiative proved very succesful, as over 3,500 votes were cast over the 134 participating projects.

The winner of the Prize of the Public is…
