  2. Wish i had time to take pictures or photos.
    The amount of times over my career working in education i have submitted various items for these so called awards (some quite detailed) and got nowhere just a hearty pat on the back from whichever company/organization who was running it that year.
    You tend to find that certain schools win/.
