Is it necessary to send printed tablets, or electronic versions via email is enough?

We believe that the productive work of the jury is possible only in the presence of full-size A0 tablets, so sending tablets is a mandatory for the competition. To avoid delays associated with transportation, all foreign participants must order the printing of tablets from the organizing committee. Please email us at moc.liamg%40noititepmocakuhcynlem if you are ready to order tablet printing. The cost for one letter will be 20 €.

Can you send me a confirmation of our registration in the competition?

All registrations are credited automatically. No confirmation required.

Do we have to create a six-digit number code ourselves?

Yes, just take six random numbers.

«The conservation of monuments is always facilitated by making use of them for some socially useful purpose. Such use is therefore desirable but it must not change the lay-out or decoration of the building. It is within these limits only that modifications demanded by a change of function should be envisaged and may be permitted.»
