I entered the same project in three competitions:
- First Competition: I received a very significant award and some recognition.
- Second Competition: Almost a black hole but at least I received the vague form letter which stated it was disqualified or simply wasn't selected.
- Third Competition: Black hole. I only learned it wasn't selected because they didn't tell me anything.
I learned a lot from these experiences. An associate with a lot of competition experience explained a lot to me, also. I don't want to elaborate on it right now, but I don't think I will be entering any more contests for a while.
