how does it work if greece is going bankrupt?

this is how it works.

you waste your time on this and who ever actually gets the work steals all of your ideas --- or some German bank hires Norman Foster to do the REAL project.

that is how this is going to go down.

sorry but the truth hurts.

Dear colleagues,
The competition is obviously an extreme example of CORRUPTION.
Why should I say such harsh words?
Is not that obvious that the first place took a Greek team.
One should say it is statically correct because the Greek teams were the numerous in the total count of the contestants.
Albeit, surprisingly, the four consolation prizes took all Greek teams. Is not that a huge RED FLAG FOR CORRUPTION?
So, if I did compete (I almost did) I would sue the organizer in front of an EU or an USA court and try to confirm my assumption.
That, most likely, would be A HUGE CLASS ACTION SUIT.
All contestants should be awarded at least the double of the first prize – approx. 60.000 euros.

Best regards and please fight corruption by the legal means - It is easier than you think,
