One in the eye for pay-to-enter competitions

  • Comment

Thankfully, I am not an architect, although at some point I had aspirations to become one!

Well perhaps the aspirations were to become a client.

I might have set up a competition, charged professional people to enter the competition (they are always a sucker for their passions). Then reap the benefits of hours of free work.

Alongside this, I might expect to get more back from the entry fee, I would not hesitate to take money from students.

Of course, I wouldn't return any money to unsuccessful candidates, however much work they put in. Then I would use a portion of the sum obtained from the entry fee as a prize, a sort of just reward.

And how would I get away with it? Well I would convince the professional body that they should endorse my competition.
