How to participate?
wysiwyg studio support…
A big WACKIT THANKYOU to the following design and rental houses around the UK and Ireland who, prior to the new lockdown in England, kindly offered the use of their studios in support of the competition to anyone who wished to enter but was without the computer power to do so. Both they and the WACKIT organisers will monitor the situation to see if this service can be offered for the three weeks after the 2nd of December 2020 if the various regional lockdowns allow safe access to the studios.
