Gallery: ANNOUNCING…The REBURBIA DESIGN COMPETITION!

    Hi,

    Just curious, is this an Internaitonal competition?…Are non-Americans/non-Canadians eligible for submitting entries and eligible for winning a prize?.

    I read the Eligibilty section of the official rules and it did not mention anything about nationality issues.

    So are non-Westerners allowed to participate?

    Please reply as soon as possible, hopefully before July 31

    Many thanks.
